Swingline Anywhere Compact Stapler Review
If you're looking for a stapler that can accompany you wherever you go and you still want to enjoy the perks of a Swingline product, there's one that you will probably love. It is the Swingline Anywhere Compact Stapler, also known as the 79175. This is an eye-catching device that's colorful, lightweight, and it has two great integrated features that make stapling even easier. However, there are some disadvantages to this product as well, mainly its small stapling capacity. In this review, we'll list all the strengths and weaknesses of the 79175 so you can tell if this is the stapler that's right for you.
The 79175 is small and lightweight. It can be taken anywhere and would be a great choice for college students, as well as professionals who travel a lot or work outside the office and still need to staple their documents.
This product has a maximum stapling capacity of 15 sheets. This will more than adequate for stapling school papers, some personal documents, and so on.
Each unit has an integrated staple remover. That way you won't have to carry around a separate remover or try to remove a misplaced staple with your bare hands.
This stapler also has a staple storage area so you will always have extra supplies handy.
The 79175 is available in three colors: teal, blue, and purple. The body is made of translucent plastic for a hip, modern look that will definitely be a hit with younger users.
This is really one of the most affordable staplers you can buy, so it is great for individuals that need a basic stapler to keep at home or in their briefcase or school bag. Plus, you get Swingline quality for a low price.
- A limited one-year warranty will cover your 79175 if you experience problems with it.
Ironically, the 79175's main strength is also its main weakness. Since this product is so small, it's incapable of stapling thicker documents. This will definitely be frustrating for some people. However, the 79175 does offer more power than the Swingline Tot, which can only staple 12 sheets.
This product is only compatible with Swingline S.F. 3 premium staples.
The 79175 can't do center-stitch fastening so making booklets with this device would be nearly impossible.
Although the funky colors of this product are eye-catching and will be popular with younger users and creative types, they simply don't convey a professional image. It's hard to imagine a lawyer or CEO with one of these products on his/her desk.
The body of the 79175 is made out of plastic so the stapler won't last as long as an all-metal device.
Overall, the Swingline Anywhere Compact Stapler is really a basic document fastening device that's very colorful and easy to transport. Although the stapling capacity is on the small side and it's not the most professional-looking product in the world, the 79175 is a good choice if you want a funky-looking stapler that you can carry with you.
