Purpose: It is a little device that cuts a little tongue in a corner of a couple of sheets of paper, and tucks this into a cut on a side, to fasten the sheets together. It works well for a very few sheets of paper, but understandably isn't strong enough to fasten more than three sheets reliably. Staples, of course, can take a lot of punishment and still keep on ticking, unlike this fastening method. Why use such a relatively less-reliable-than-staples method?
(1) Fastened documents can be shredded without hesitation. (Metal staples ruin most shredders.)
(2) Fewer staples in the landfills. (Unless you're the exception, and you think staples improve landfills!)
Environmental Friendliness: A+, once you start using the thing. Unfortunately, see "Packaging" below.
Robustness: Don't know. It looks sturdily built, but only time will tell.
Reliability: I don't expect much from it, but I anticipate that it will work for temporarily holding a couple of sheets together. But one packet of stapled sheets will probably catch on it's neighbor unless you're careful.
Compactness: The gadget is pretty small, a little larger than a golf-ball, which is to say, smaller than a medium-sized stapler.
Packaging: D. The thing came in a big cardboard box, packaged securely enough for a delicate coffee carafe for NASA, and overnight. (This meant that they charge $5:50 for shipping, close to the cost of the stapler itself.) There has to be a better way.Read more ›
the tool is not supposed to be used on a corner, but an edge.

I highly recommend this- I bought some for a few friends and they love this product too. No more staplers to refill or staplers to buy!Published 29 days ago by YENVAN
It's OK at fastening 2 sheets together. Anything else and it's too loose and comes apart too fast. Mine broke after using it less than 20 times.Published on March 12, 2010 by Benjamin G. Cole
It's a decent device, though it will tear holes in your paper - beware! Don't use it on anything important :)Published on February 19, 2010 by Kindle Customer
