Am I The Only Teacher In The World Who Had Not Heard Of The “Stapleless Stapler”?


I recently heard about a stapler without staples (I apologize for not remembering where I first learned about it) and didn’t have a clue what it could be.

I searched and found it on Amazon, ordered it, and it just arrived.

It seems like magic, and uses the paper itself to bind them together.

Since it makes a small hole in the paper, you wouldn’t want to use it for professional presentations. But it seems perfect for schoolwork!

I’m not sure how well it will hold up to classroom use, but there also appears to be versions that are more heavy-duty.

Have you used them?

I’m adding this info to The Best Good, Inexpensive & Simple Classroom Technology Tools.

  1. Maybe not the most earth-shaking news, but if it eliminates jammed staples and running out of staples, always at the time when you need one, I like the concept

  2. I had heard about them several years ago and had to search high and low before I found one. I have purchased 3 over the past few years in an attempt to find one that is effective but none really work well! They all take up space in my drawer. If I need a class set of multiple page documents, I use the stapler function on the copy machine. The one pictured looks better because of the scissor style handle, the ones I have are a cube or a cylindrical shape.
