Staple-Free Stapler is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 19.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Total fail I love the concept of a staple-free fastener. Nothing to refill, no waste and it makes paper easier to recycle. When my old one broke, I was excited to try this model. The window to watch the process seemed cool. However, the mechanism jams most of the time and gets totally caught if you try to staple 4 sheets - see photo with stuck gadget

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gift for teacher This is a gift for teacher. She has gone through 4 or 5 staplers and it's the half Year point. Hope this works now. I tried it, and I thought it did quite well with four pieces of paper.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Neat I love this stapler. Just wish it could stapler more papers together than it does.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from No staples When I first saw this online I was hesitant to buy it but I decided to buy the small one and all I can say is that I love it. I don't have to worry about staples. The only thing is that you can't staple a lot of papers so I still have to use a regular stapler but it's still great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than expected This staple-free stapler is great. I like that I never run out of staples and that I can put old documents directly into my small home shredder (no staples to remove). It REALLY holds the pages together as well as metal staples. Only down side is that once pages are together, if you want to separate them to make copies it is more difficult to remove and re-attach than it is with metal staples. Very happy with this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Invention This actually works! It is very slick and clever how it "staples" paper together. I plan to get many more to give as gifts. It is unique, and I marvel each time it does its thing. Very cool!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good Works like it should. No issues so far. The previous no staple stapler broke down after a few months. This one appears sturdier so hopefully it'll last.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best buy This little staple-free stapler works like a gem. Don't have to worry about all the different staple sizes for all my staplers with this one-size fits all product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great! I purchased this as an impulse buy, and intended to give to our school secretary. I ended up opening it to try it out, and it never made it to her. I love it, works great, and it's safe for the kids to staple things. I can carry it around in my purse, and I won't have to worry about staples either running out or falling out. Going to buy the larger version for the secretary!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Going Green Like the fact I don't have to purchase staples ever again...just press and it clips and snips. Easy to take apart and doesn't damage my files.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unique tool I have to remove staples before shredding so this was perfect although I was a skeptic. It works quite well! It doesn't hold more than 6 sheets but that is reasonable. My co-workers were also very impressed!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not bad I like the concept behind this; I try to be as eco-friendly as possible. It's easy to use, but I just have to make sure the papers I'm stapling are touching the end of the slot (or else it'll hole-punch the edge off your paper instead). This is great for those who shred documents at home since there are no metal staples to worry about. However, the handles of the stapler are spread out pretty wide (my fingers aren't that long) & there's some resistance when squeezing them together. They're almost like hand grippers, but not as intense, lol. Lastly, you'll have to handle your papers carefully. I used this to staple some homework a few times. After they were graded, my professor gave them back to me with some pages unattached. So beware: other people will not be as gentle as you at handling papers.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Reliable and Safe Good purchase for a classroom. Don't need to worry about the children getting pinched or cut by real staples. Had trouble using it with seven pages. Worked best for smaller amounts. Children love using it.

Community Q&A

Does the small stapler also hold up to seven pages?

The product description says the stapler can hold up to seven pages together. Do both the large and the small staplers hold this many papers, or do the large and small staplers hold different amounts? Thanks!
Asked by: michegerri
The Large Staple-Free Stapler secures up to 7 sheets of paper while the Small Staple-Free Stapler accommodates up to 4 sheets.
