This manual stapler is attractive, easy to load, and easy to use with a light touch. It is well made and should be durable and reliable. It was by far the best easy-touch stapler that I tried, and easily the best in the $20-$30 range. I had bought a couple of other models of staplers from brick and mortar stores but while they cost less (under $20) they were poorly made and just didn’t work.
My compact plastic Swingline broke, parts internally sheared apart. I wanted something not only in my favorite color, but also made of metal. This aligns better and makes better shaped staples than any compact I have ever owned. Will buy a couple more for keeping staplers handy where space is at a premium – LIKE MY VEHICLE :)~
I was so fed up with mini staplers when I ordered these. I wasn’t too confident they would be any better. But, Wow. These work perfectly. I haven’t had ANY more problems so far. I need to buy more and give them as gifts to everyone I know.
