Image Number 3 for United States Patent #7318545.
A stapler with a staple-supporting device has a base, a cover, a holding bracket and a pushing device. The base, the cover and the holding bracket are mounted pivotally together. The cover has a staple spade and the holding bracket has a corresponding staple outlet. The pushing device is mounted slidably in the holding device and has a pivoting staple-supporting device. A series of staple is mounted in the holding bracket, and the last staple is mounted on the staple-supporting device. When only one staple is left in the holding bracket, the staple-supporting device keeps the staple from falling out of the staple outlet.
