Slide-n-Store? 100% Recycled Staple Remover, Assorted Colors (No Color Choice)
I, too, have been looking for a staple remover that does not tear a few sheets that have been stapled. This remover doesn't work well with flat-backed staples. It not only created larger holes in the stapled sheets, but it also tore the pages and made them difficult to run through a scanner unless I cut from the area the corner of the page. the staples do not want to advance to the holding area--which in itself is difficult to open. I would prefer to inappropriately use a mail opener than this product.

Awesome Product !!
I have been using this great staple remover for over 2 years on a daily basis and never encounter any problem using it. I LOVE it and all my co-workers. If's so simple to use. I can't imagine anyone not happy with it. Thank god my floor is staple free and it's made in USA.

just not functional
When I saw this, I thought it was a great idea! I work at a school, and I often find myself struggling to pull staples out of bulletin boards. I have another staple remover, and it works well, but I always end up leaving the floor littered with staples. So, when I saw that there was an option that claimed to actually store the staples so that I could dispose of them later, I was thrilled!
I got this product in the mail today and immediately took it out to a bulletin board to use. First, I found that the tip, which is supposed to slide under staples, is plastic and considerably thicker than the metal tip on the staple remover I typically use. Consequently, it is very difficult to slide this under a staple, and if you do get it under the staple, the paper that staple is holding up will almost definitely be damaged. We like to re-use bulletin board supplies here, so that is definitely not a plus! Furthermore, the staples did not go into the storage unit on the back of this item! They simply fell to the floor as they do with any other staple remover. Obviously, this completely defeats my intended purpose in buying it. I am very disappointed with this purchase.
