Swingline Compact LightTouch Reduced-Effort Stapler Review

Are you looking for a new Swingline stapler for your home or office? If so, you may want to check out the company’s Compact LightTouch Reduced-Effort stapler. This is a product that’s a small size, is easy to use, and it works with some of the most commonly found staples on the market. Here’s an in-depth look at this product so you can decide whether it will fit your needs.

  • The Swingline Compact’ stapling capacity isn’t the best in the world. This device can staple up to 20 sheets of paper. This is a pretty typical amount for a desk stapler, so it will be good for everyday documents. However, if you need something that can handle more sheets, you might want to opt for a heavy-duty device.
  • If you want a stapler that won’t take up a lot of room, this product would be a good choice. It’s small and compact and can even be toted around with you.
  • This device can only be loaded with a half-strip of staples. There are 210 staples in a strip, so you’ll be able to load the device with 105. You should expect to be reloading the device a lot if you plan on stapling a lot of documents.
  • The Swingline Compact utilizes Swingline S.F. 4 premium and standard staples. These supplies are easy to find and are inexpensive. Using these fasteners ensures that your stapler will operate without any issues.
  • This device has a very shallow throat that’s only 1.5” deep. Since it’s so shallow, you won’t be able to do any center stapling with it. If you need to do that kind of document fastening, you should consider a long-arm stapler.
  • The Swingline Compact is easy to use and you only have to put out half the effort you’d normally use with any other stapler. This will be helpful when you’re processing a lot of documents because your hands won’t get worn out. It also makes stapling a much more pleasant experience.
  • This product looks great thanks to its contemporary styling. The blue and gray color scheme will look great in any environment: the home, office, or classroom.
  • This device has both metal and plastic parts so it’s pretty durable. The product is covered by a limited one-year warranty.

The Swinglie Compact is a pretty decent stapler especially if you just need something for occasional use. As discussed above, the 20-sheet stapling capacity isn’t great, but it’s typical of staples in this class. It should be fine for working with everyday documents, but you may want to consider a heavy-duty device instead if your documents tend to run long. It’s great that this device utilizes fasteners that are easy to find but you’ll want to get a good supply of them around since you’ll be reloading the stapler a lot. (Thanks to its ability to only handle half-strips.) You’ll appreciate how easy to use this device is and that it doesn’t require a lot of effort to use. And, of course, the warranty is good. While the Swingline Compact isn’t perfect, it does have enough good features for us to recommend it. So take a look at it today.

Questions & Answers
Q:
what is the plastic removable hinge piece for on the top side back edge of the stapler?
Asked by samanthaface 7 months ago
A:
the LightTouch stapler has more complex inner working than a traditional stapler to provide low force stapling. The piece you mention allows that part to hinge slightly differently than the rest of the top in order to accomodate the propoer movement

Q:
how do I get staples in this stapler?
Asked by Queen 7 months ago
A:
This is a standard top-loading stapler. To open for loading, hold the base of the stapler and pull the cap up. It should swing open and you will be able to load your staples.

Answered by Mybinding.com 7 months ago
Q:
Does the base swing out so that I can staple things to a flat surface (e.g., a wall)?
Asked by Kevinator 7 months ago
A:
This stapler does not open for tacking.

Answered by Mybinding.com 7 months ago
Q:
Is there a special way to reload staples, or just the usual; open, fill, close?
Asked by fussy 7 months ago
A:
In this case, no, there is not a special way to load the staples. You are correct, this is more likely to happen with smaller pieces of staples. You may be able to reduce the problem by slowly closing the stapler so you can control the force of the spring a little better

Q:
is there and online owners manual or diagram?
Asked by Community 7 months ago
A:
Hello, I don't have a user manual for you, but I'd like to try and talk you through it. I'll need a little more information though. If the stapler is not closing, can I assume it will not staple either? Are you able to open the stapler? Do you see any obstructions in the front or back of the staple chamber?

Q:
How do you open this stapler to use on a bulletin board?
Asked by Angi 7 months ago
A:
Due to the reduced effort mechanism in this stapler, it is not able to open flat for use on a bulletin board. However, most of our traditional staplers will open flat - either by pressing a button or latch on the bottom of the stapler, or by simply pulling up on the top. You will likely see it called out as "Opens for Tacking" as a feature.

Q:

Asked by Reception 7 months ago
A:
this is a standard top-loading stapler, so just pull the cap up and it will swing open for loading.
