Why does a stapler have two different "settings"?
On most staplers I have ever used, the little metal plate on the bottom can be rotated to have one of two different "settings". Normally the staple goes through the paper, and the ends bend in. The other option has the ends bending out. Go look at a stapler if you're confused.
Why is there a need for the ends to "bend out" ?
