staple legs
Explanation:
e.g.
http://www.asme.org/sections/dayton/oper.htm

Returning to Fig. 3, on the downstroke of the operating handle (not shown), the wire knife (J) is driven downward, thereby severing the staple
wire (E) where it exits from the wire guide block (G). During this cutting action, the unformed staple (H) is captured between two surfaces of the
staple former (J) pressing downward on it and one surface of the staple anvil (K) supporting it. Immediately after the staple wire has been
severed, the legs of the staple are formed downward by the staple former (J) as it continues to move toward the ticket and the merchandise. The
staple anvil (K) stays in its "up" position until the legs of the staple have been completely formed. It then is driven downward in parallel with the
movement of the staple former (J), as shown in Fig. 4. At the same time, the staple driver (V) is lowered into intimate contact with the cross bar
of the staple.
