Stapler Usability Concerns

July 26, 2006

An extreme case of mis- or non-applied usability practices:
A staple gun fired from the wrong end!

I don’t work in physical product manufacturing or packaging, but I’m thinking the manufacturer could have prevented this. The user didn’t read the instructions (seems quite common), but the design of the staple gun could have reinforced the correct usage through shape, colors, or warning labels.
