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?
