Junk

By Kat42 from Texas on 09/06/2015


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I purchased this stapler quite a while ago because my only stapler was an ancient tiny thing that couldn't handle more than two sheets. I rarely use a stapler so it has been months sitting on my desk. It began to stick on the third use (using recommended staples and only stapling four sheets) and wouldn't return to stapling position without prying it back up. I used it that way for about five more uses and now it is bound so tightly I can't pry it open with a screwdriver. I'm familiar with the mechanics of a stapler and I've used several nice Swingline staplers in my life. This stapler wasn't jammed, misloaded, or used incorrectly, it just never should have made it past quality control. I noticed on one of the earlier un-stickings that the bar that pushes the staples seemed to be crooked, either bent or one side cut longer and I think it is what was binding. It's way too late to exchange at the store so I guess I'll use my tiny old reliable piece of junk and comb estate sales for an older, proven Swingline model.

My favorite stapler!

By evolving62 from Middletown, RI, USA on 04/09/2015


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I love this stapler. I just purchased my 3rd one today. The first one was dropped a couple of years ago and never worked right after. The second one just stopped working today, and I will get in touch with Swingline regarding this. So, I purchased another one today. This is the best stapler I've ever used. I love the compact size, and I've never had a problem with jams. I use the Swingline SF3 half strip staples. I would most definitely recommend this stapler. Those that post bad reviews may be trying to staple too many sheets at once. I've never had an issue, and I've used it for stacks of papers up to 25-30 sheets.

Worst Stapler

By HeatherT from Sunnyvale, CA, USA on 03/18/2015


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I purchased this stapler for our business as our previous one was cheap and kept jamming. This one advertised "Jam Free Guarantee." Now that I have it it jams more than the cheap one I bought! I would never purchase another one of these staplers and from now on will spend less on something I know will not last long.

jam free...stopped working easily

By METCON from Faribault, MN 55021, USA on 02/12/2015


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

The stapler does not staple one after another anymore. It staples one time, then the top must be opened and then it will staple a second time. very tedious...
