Rated 5 out of 5�by GraphicsPro Even Better Than The Last One!
This is the third Swingline Long Reach Stapler I've owned, but NOT because of the stapler. They are quite durable, IF used correctly. My last two Swingline staplers died sudden and violent deaths, when I allowed other people to use them. When stapling a relatively large number of pages, a little extra downward pressure is necessary. It is NOT necessary (or advisable) to pound the stapler, which is what a couple of folks did to my previous Swinglines. For durability and ease of use, these staplers can't be beat without investing in a far more expensive electric stapler. As I mentioned in the title, the design has been improved even since I bought my last one. The paper depth stop was originally made of plastic, and held its position just by being snug against the rails. This worked fine until the plastic became loose from repeated adjustments. The current model has a cleverly designed metal depth stop. One squeezes the pair of metal "wings" to allow the stop to slide. Releasing the wings allows the metal stop to grip the metal rail, and the stop is there to stay until ready for the next depth adjustment. There's no chance that the stop will move and allow the stapler to place the staple in the wrong place. I've already used my new Swingline Long Reach Stapler to produce a batch of folded calendars for a customer, and I am absolutely pleased with the stapler's performance. In fact, the only thing I would suggest as an improvement, would be an adjustable side stop to simplify placing the staples consistently from piece to piece. Overall, this is a top-notch piece of equipment!

Rated 1 out of 5�by Kinderfriend Very disappointed.
I teach kindergarten and bought this product hoping to be able to create books for my classroom. It has never worked correctly. One side of the staple would not penetrate the paper or it would end up in the wrong direction and broken. The stapler jams and does not return to the original position. I bought this stapler because it was a Swingline but will reconsider next time I make an office supply purchase.
