A foot stapler is designed for the rapid and secure closing of corrugated box bottoms. The design allows the user to place a folded box over the post and staple it closed using a wide crown staple. It is commonly used for the industrial packaging of heavy product. No electric or air lines means that this foot stapler can be moved to where the packaging is occurring. The rugged design allows for a long service life in very demanding environments. Carton Closing Corporation (now ISM) has been making this type of packaging stapler for over 50 years.
