I’ve tested 6 TYPES OF STAPLE REMOVERS and sadly many of them were a waste of money so before you buy one, it’s good to learn from my mistakes!
TRADITIONAL CLAW STAPLE REMOVER
When I used to work in offices, this was the only staple remover available. I would always be wrestling with the staples trying again and again before they were completely removed.
When I started being a WAHM, I knew there had to be better options out there! So I ordered some on Amazon and had ShippingCart affordably send them to Manila.
THE STAPLE REMOVERS THAT DID NOT WORK
These are the ones that sadly did not work. I had to have them recycled because even if I gave them away, they wouldn’t be helping any body.
The concept of this SWINGLINE STAPLE REMOVER is good, but it feel flimsy and did not do the job more than half of the time. How disappointing. I had high hopes for the magnet, but
This NOVA GLACIER EFFORTLESS STAPLE REMOVER was even worse. It went straight to the recycling bin.
Despite being “handy” I never managed to make this HEAVY DUTY STAPLER REMOVER work! Such a waste!
THE STAPLE REMOVERS THAT WORKED!
Right now, I am loving this BOSTITCH PREMIUM STAPLER REMOVER! I only wish it had the magnets since I need to pick up all the wires after I’m done. But it’s super smooth and if I do it from a perfect angle, it removes the staples in one smooth move! Because of it’s metal construction I bet it’s also good for heavy duty staple wires, but I’ve never tried it.
In this IGTV video you can see it in action as I open some paperbags! Some of the time it only removed half of the staple, because I was taking the video and at an awkward angle.
According to all my research and reading different review like Gadget Review and Amazon’s Top Rated Staple Removers this plastic one, also from the same brand called BOSTITCH PROFESSIONAL MAGNETIC EASY STAPLE REMOVE seems to be the best of the best getting a 4.8 out of 5 stars with 6,580 reviews! I wish I had found it sooner!
Conveniently it has magnet to pick up the staples! So remember not all BOSTITCH products are made equal! Always check reviews!
HEAVY DUTY STAPLE REMOVER
You can easily find similar ones, that I am sure will be as good here on Amazon USA.
I hope you found this review helpful! I try to avoid staples whenever I can because it’s one of those things that NEVER GET RECYCLED. So even if it’s small, I am sure all the staples being used in the world daily isn’t helping our environment.
Another reason why I avoid it is because my fingers usually get poked and wounded, when I try to open them without my trusty staple removers! So to avoid small but painful ouchies, a good working staple remover is a must!
