The Staple Free Stapler: A Kid Friendly Option

Updated on September 28, 2011

The Safe and Environmentally Friendly Staple Free Stapler

Whether you're into all things environmentally friendly or you have kids and others you wish to protect from sharp metal staples, a staple free stapler can be a great alternative.

This handy device merely punches out very small strips of paper on each sheet, intertwining them together; a completely staple-less method. It's secure and effective. Learn a bit more about them on this page and see the available models. There's even a brief video at the bottom of the page to show you exactly how a staple free stapler works.

Most of the staple free staplers on this page are available in a variety of colors. Clicking on any item will allow you to see more of the options.

What's So Great About a Staple Free Stapler?

There are a number of advantages to a staple free stapler which is why so many people choose them. Here are just a few of the positives:

  • They're eco friendly.
    They're human powered; there are no batteries and no electricity needed. In addition, they create no waste, paper or otherwise, and they don't require metal staples at all.
  • They are affordable.
    Have you noticed that many eco-friendly options cost more? From hybrid and electric cars to more eco friendly detergents, those environmentally conscious choices often cost more. But not so with staple free staplers. Their cost in fact is generally equivalent to that of a traditional stapler.
  • They're safe.
    These staple free staplers are great for use with kids and anyone else you wouldn't want exposed to sharp metal objects. Forget any nasty finger pricks when handling the stapled documents you create with these devices and little fingers will never get stapled accidentally. It won't happen.
  • They are shredder "approved".
    When you're done with your documents, you can send them through even the smallest of paper shredders without fear. There are no staples to remove, nothing to jam a shredder or dull shredder cutting blades.
  • They are maintenance free and cost effective.
    Being staple free, you don't have to worry about running out or reloading more staples. This saves on costs and hassle or any possible down time.
  • No staple remover required.
    When you use a staple free stapler, you'll never have to use a staple remover again. Not for shredders or anything else. If you want to separate pages, just pull briskly.
  • They have a compact design
    These staple free staplers won't take up a lot of your desk or drawer space. They come with a variety of designs; some of them are perfect for young kids while others will look right at home even on the desk of an office professional.

Other Important Things to Know

These staple free staplers will bind pages together securely. However, if you pull briskly on the pages, they will separate.

In addition, these aren't heavy duty staplers for handling large project reports, annual reports, and so forth. In general they will provide good service when the job entails binding up to 5 sheets of paper together. Larger jobs will cause them to jam or be ineffective.

      sure would like to know where you can buy one of these. Staples do not carry it anymore.

      It's the first time I heard of a 'Staple Free Stapler'. Seems very useful for my daughter. I wonder if I can buy one from a local bookstore or school supplies store. Thanks.

      I have added this great idea to my wish list. It's a great idea. I hate staples and those nasty looking staple removers.

      I love it--- why didn't I think of that. Hey wait, maybe I did! LOL Years ago [when I was in grade school] I would tear 3 to 4 vertical strips across the top left corner of my homework pages. Then I folded the strips in opposite directions and it worked! Now we have a stapler doing the same thing in a tidier manner…

      Great hub, very interesting indeed. I've never used one but I'll give it a try. And it's also environmental friendly. Very well done mulberry.
