I ordered this stapler for my office when my plastic stapler broke. I ordered this one because someone else had the same one and it feels hefty and solid. It claims to be 100% jam proof. Let's just say it's more like 99.9%. The rubber coating and the lack of plastic make this baby feel rugged and sturdy-ready for the day of heavy stapling. Get this stapler and it may be the last one you'll ever have to buy.

No quite so Jam free! We purchased for a business location and I liked that it is supposed to staple up to 25 pages. For the 1st 2 weeks I had no problems. After that it was all down hill. It would barley make it through 10 pages, and when it did the staple did not go all the way through. I have had this for 3 months now and it jams daily, and still does not go through the regular 10 pages that I staple on average. It is now broken as the hammer that pushes the staple into the paper broke off the base. If I had the receipt I would take it back. Fortunately I have a $5 back up from Wal-Mart that has no problem stapling through the 10 pages needed. Don't waste your money!

Doesn't work

Comments about Swingline Optima Grip Compact Stapler:

After 12 months this stapler would not work. Had to open/close for each staple. Waste of money!

Only worked for a short time

By Christreal

from Huntsville, AL, USA

Comments about Swingline Optima Grip Compact Stapler:

I was using this stapler for just a few months and it just quit working entirely. I only used the optima premium staples suggested, too. It always had troubles (had to load an exact and small amount of staples in order for it to work), but it was working fine other than that until now... Got it back out to start binding my notebooks and it jammed immediately. Only stapled recommended page limit. I'm sad because I actually thought I was spending a little bit extra so that I would have a better stapler. Been in moderate to low use for less than a year.

Slide keeps popping out! GRRRR

By Cat1962

from Oklahoma City, OK, USA

Comments about Swingline Optima Grip Compact Stapler:

This stapler has issues. The slide keeps flying out and has to be pushed in after ever use. It is hard to staple with also. I don't recommend it.

This stapler does not return to stapling position.

By Christine928

from Houma, LA, USA

Comments about Swingline Optima Grip Compact Stapler:

I bought this stapler a few weeks ago and from the beginning it has jammed. It will staple but it does not go back to stapling position. I have to separate the top so I can use the stapler again it is very inconvenient and frustrating.

Straight out of the box, doesn't work

By MaryW

from New York, NY, USA

Comments about Swingline Optima Grip Compact Stapler:

I purchased this stapler and S.F.3 Premium staples to go with it, but it never worked. It jammed the first time I tried to staple something and no matter what I do I can't fix it. Total waste of money- for the staplers and the staple. incredibly disappointed in the Swingline brand. Needless to say, my company will look elsewhere for staplers from now on.

Jam Free Stapler... Jammed.

By jewelsof1985

from AL

Comments about Swingline Optima Grip Compact Stapler:

I love the stapler design. Probably the best I have had, but it does have a huge sticker down the side of it that says "Jam Free Guaranteed". It jammed - Staples were stuck. I tried to get them out, but they then decided to get stuck under my finger nail. A bit of blood and about 5 minutes later I finally got it un-jammed with the help of a mini screw driver and pliers. REALLY hope that doesn't happen again!

Powerful Punch

Comments about Swingline Optima Grip Compact Stapler:

This stapler is my favorite. I use it daily to staple all sorts of papers for filing. It is compact. It has a wonderful soft grip and I like that it is small and works likes its big. The powerful staple power is great..

Great workhorse!

By chrisc

from Wichita, KS, USA

Comments about Swingline Optima Grip Compact Stapler:

I've had this tool for over a year now and I truthfully don't think it's jammed but one time. Its handy to use and durable as it's been dropped it on the office carpet several times. I really like the standup feature to make it easy to grab and takes up less desk top space. I'd recommend this to friends and co-workers.

Cartridge Comparison Guide
  • Cartridge Types
  • Ink & Toner Basics
  • Number of Pages & Shelf Life
Cartridge Type
Genuine or OEM (Original) Cartridges Remanufactured Cartridges Compatible Cartridges
Description OEM stands for original equipment manufacturer, meaning the cartridge was made by the same company that made your printer. Original brand cartridges are very reliable and sometimes the only option if your printer is new to market or uncommon. Remanufactured ink is a genuine brand cartridge that has gone through one cycle of use. After use, the cartridge is recycled, acquired by a remanufacturing facility and put through a rigorous professional refurbishing process. During the refurbishing process the cartridge is disassembled, thoroughly cleaned and tested for quality. It's then carefully refilled, tested again and brought back to life. Buying remanufactured prevents one less cartridge from ending up in a landfill. A compatible cartridge is a brand new ink cartridge built by a manufacturer other than your printer. It's like buying the generic version of the genuine brand. Most are uniquely designed to differentiate from genuine cartridges. Despite any structural difference you may notice, the cartridge will still fit in your machine and print a full yield, just like the original brand.
Price Factors Many printer manufacturers follow the razor-and-blades business model which may result in higher priced genuine cartridges. Remanufactured ink is much cheaper than the original brand ink. It's far more cost effective to refurbish a previously used cartridge than create a new OEM from scratch. Compatible ink is much cheaper than the original brand. Compatible suppliers don't have to worry about the additional costs that hinder OEMs like new printers or firmware, which lets them keep prices low.
Quality Original cartridges work extremely well and are covered under a warranty by the printer manufacturer High quality remanufactured ink will match the quality of the original, but not all remanufactured ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results. High quality compatible ink will match the quality of the original, but not all compatible ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results.
What's the difference between ink and toner cartridges?
Ink Cartridges Toner Cartridges
Printer Type Work with inkjet printers Work with laser printers
Material Liquid ink Dry powder
How it works Inkjet printers use a series of nozzles that spray tiny drops of ink directly on the print suface Laser toner printers use static electricity and heat to bond dry toner powder to a page
Commonly used by Casual home users, small business and photographers Large businesses and schools
Number of Pages You Can Print A cartridge's page yield is the estimated number of pages you can print. Page yield is based on 5% page coverage. This means that the quoted page yield is based upon printed pages where only 5% of the page has been imprinted with ink. For example, a short memo has approximately 5% coverage. If you have a cartridge that has a yield of 500 pages, it can print 500 pages of that short memo. If you are printing letters, photos or graphics, your coverage will vary greatly and your page yield will drop significantly.
Cartridge Warranty and Shelf Life Most ink and toner cartridges include a warranty or "best by" date on their box. Remanufactured and compatible ink cartridges can last 12-18 months unopened, and toner cartridges can last up to 3 years.
Cartridge Care and Storage Only open a cartridge when you need it. Opened cartridges will eventually dry out, especially if the protective tape or clip has been removed. If you have an open ink cartridge around and would like to try and prevent it from drying out, place it nozzle side up in a plastic airtight tub. If your cartridge came with protective tape or a clip reapply both before storing. Place a damp cloth or paper towel in the tub, next to the cartridge and keep it stored in a cool, dark place.
