If you have ever worked in an office or at a school or have ever done anything concerning office work, you know that there are a few tools that you will be hard pressed to do without. To begin with, of course, there is the scotch tape. Then the pen, and the rubber bands, and of course, the humble paperclip. All of these are completely essential, but none of them are what we are here to talk about.
No, today we are here to talk about a piece of office equipment that is not just essential, but so essential that people jealously guard theirs. A piece of office equipment that is so important to the owner that in one case, a man (okay, a fictional man in a film, but still) was driven to burn down an entire office because they deprived him of his beloved piece of equipment. I’m talking, of course, about the stapler (and about the guy from office space who flipped out when they took his stapler).
Something kind of interesting about the stapler market; it is almost completely dominated by the company Swingline. Because of that, literally all the products reviewed were variants on the Swingline design.
