They need to invent a staple remover staple remover for removing the staples left in this remover,
This review is from: Swingline Ultimate Staple Remover, Platinum (S7038121) (Office Product)The housing for this staple remover feels cheap. It is a bit too short, and should be half an inch longer. The metal scoop on the end is not wide enough or long enough to pull staples out of stacks of more than about 5 sheets of paper. The reason other staple removers of this type work is because the scoop gradually gets wider, which acts to apply increased force to the staple and easily pull them from the paper. 3/4 of the staples I try to remove end up breaking on one end, or the scoop fails to "catch" the staple so it can lift it out. Staples that are removed, usually get stuck in the remover. The Swingline does have some type of lever on it that you slide forward, which is designed to push the removed staple off of the device. This rarely works, and makes things too complicated. I don't have time to activate levers to discard my used staples, I am too busy writing reviews on the Internet about staple removers.
If you want a staple remover that works, go with the Stanley Bostitch Professional Staple Remover. It is labeled as a "professional" staple remover so you know it is serious business.
