A Staple Puller #1

A very simple way to pull a staple is to use the claws of an ordinary carpenter's hammer and a nail, as shown in the sketch. The staple can be removed quickly without being bent, and no damage to the material into which it was driven will result.

A Staple Puller #2

With nothing but ordinary tools the removing of staples is tedious and difficult work. If a suitable -sized wire nail is bent like a fishhook and the hook part driven under the staple, the latter can be easily pulled out by grasping and pulling the nail with a hammer in the usual way. - Contributed by R.
