Rated 5 out of 5�by Rettirree Very Good Stapler
This unit works extremely well, creating correctly formed, tightly-bound staples almost effortlessly. I already use one of the smaller Optimas. Less-expensive staplers sometimes flatten staples, increasing effort and causing stapled sheets to be loose or detach. You pay more for these Optimas, but they are worth it in the long run.

Rated 3 out of 5�by Kaylyn87 Pushes hard and now the spring broke
As a stapler it does the job. I wish it pushed down smoother and easier. Now the spring that causes it to "re-cock" or remain open and ready for the next compression has broken or popped out. I have to prop it open with my finger before I can slide the paper in. Real pain in the neck. How do I get a spring and repair it???

Rated 1 out of 5�by TheStapleUnjammer Mine jams too
Very frustrating to look at the "Jam Free" sticker on the side when it is constantly jamming after a few month's use, even when I use permium staples. Don't fall for the jam free claim!

Rated 2 out of 5�by LisaMac Jams, even when using the Optima staplers
I am a school teacher and rely on my staplers. I have purchased an Optima electric stapler, which works very well. So, when I needed a new manual stapler, this is the company I went for! However, it jams constantly, even when using the Optima staplers (which I buy myself because they are more expensive and the school will not purchase). I am SO disappointed! My husband unjams it regularly, (at least once a month, usually more than that. Very frustrating! The stapler is less than a year old.
