    What is "this part" of a stapler name?

    What is this part of a stapler name? This is the small things next to the staplers in this picture below.




    And without a picture what do I have to describe and ask in order to get the right name for this thing?

    Thanks in advance.

    I see two staplers with the staples besides them.

    The staples are loaded (put into) the stapler.

    I believe those are simply called 'staples' or 'staple(r) refills'.

    In English you would ask for staples for an office stapler.
