A staple remover is a device that allows for the quick removal of a staple from a material without causing damage. Also known as a Kansas, the best-known form of staple remover, designed for light-gauge staples, consists essentially of a) two opposing, pivot-mounted pairs of thin, steep wedges and b) a spring that returns the device to the open position after use. Although a simple metal wedge can be used for the same purpose, and although some staplers (especially small ones about 1.5 inches (3.8 cm) long) feature such a wedge at their hinge end, use of the wedge tends to tear fragile papers.
The following method reduces the risk of damage to the paper sheets being separated, albeit at some cost to speed and associated time efficiency:
Turn the paper over to the side of the paper (usually the back) over which the staple’s prongs have been folded. Use each opposed pair of tines to clip one of the prongs, re-straightening them and in the process raising them from the paper. Turn the paper back over to the front side against which the main body of the staple has been pressed. Gently slide the tines on one side of the remover under the main body of the staple and press the remover’s halves together until you have a firm hold on the staple. Continuing to maintain a firm hold on the staple, pull the entire staple gently out of the paper.
