Miniature Stapler


I decided to get a tiny stapler and figured it would be the old red version from Swingline called the "Tot."

I got the name right but that's about it.


Seems like in the decades since I last bought one, they've completely redesigned it as well as tricking it out with added features while selling it for less than I recall paying in the dimly remembered days of the late twentieth century.

Now it's all swoopy and angled like the BMW Z4 and they've added an integrated staple remover and a storage compartment on the bottom, ostensibly for spare staples but you could think outside the office supplies box if you were so inclined.

Mine measures 2.5"L x 1.25"W x 1.5"H.

I've had one of these for a couple of years now. I didn't know about the bottom storage space until now! Wow Wee!!!!!

Looks like a sperm whale to me.

Hiya Joe,

Swingline gets a facepalm from me on this one. "Tot" (rhymes with boat) is the German word for dead.

Figured you'd want to know.

I've never seen a very chic stapler, ever! :) My sister would really l-o-v-e this.
