We're a small two-person office, so my assistant and I are always looking for ways to get our projects done quickly and efficiently and the Swingline electric stapler is one of our favorite in-office tools. As a trade association for commercial contractors, a lot of our communications is done electronically. But when it comes to Board meetings or handouts for membership meetings, many of our members still prefer their material on paper and in their hands, and that's where our electronic stapler makes our day! It shortens our tasks and greatly reduces the incident of jammed staplers or mis-hits on manual staplers almost completely. We love it!

The trigger pin is made of PLASTIC. As you use this product, the paper you insert will cut away at the plastic pin each time you use it until the pin finally snaps off rendering the stapler USELESS!!! {{Swingline could easily remedy this issue by using a Metal trigger pin.}}. If you were lucky enough to have it break while still under warranty, you have to send the unit back on your own dime, they won't pay for the shipping costs. The first replacement sent to me appeared to have been a REFURBISHED unit, not new. It smelled strongly of gear oil, had a much shorter cord {{which would not reach my outlet}}, and would bite down on the paper and NOT LET GO OF IT!!! Swingline had to send me a replacement for my replacement. The second replacement unit lasted only 6 weeks. It had suction cups that held so strongly to my desk that when I tried to move it the bottom of the unit held fast to my desk & separated from the rest of the unit. When this happened the catches that hold the wiring panel where it belonged also broke. It was floating freely about in the unit so I taped it in place. That worked for a few days until it finally gave up & died completely. The staple cartridges appear to have also gone down in quality causing frequent jams. Because of the way the unit is designed staple jams are Very difficult to get to. I had to buy special needle nosed pliers and dig around up in there with a bent paperclip to be able to get the staples to come out far enough that I could get to them with the pliers. Swingline used to be a brand name you could have faith in, you just knew their products were quality items. I no longer feel that way.

Won't work out of the box new!

By 

from Florida

Comments about Swingline 502E Electronic Stapler:

On my 3rd brand new one this week, so far all of them fail to work brand new out of the box. Gears work, staple cartridge inserted correctly, plugged in. Nothing. 3 in a row? Really? I hoped it would be 3rd time is a charm, but it's 3 strikes you're out!

The perfect stapler to own!!!

By 

from Spring, TX, USA

Comments about Swingline 502E Electronic Stapler:

I purchased the Swingline Desktop Cartridge Electric Stapler in 1975, almost 40 years ago. It just stopped working. I think it is the adapter that has gone bad. What can I say, but this has been a fantastic stapler. One more thing, it has "NEVER" jammed on me, not even one time.

Its not the stapler, its the cord

By 

from Madison, WI, USA

Comments about Swingline 502E Electronic Stapler:

I have used the stapler in my office for a few years (3), unfortunatley, the cord at the adaption point where it plugs into the stapler is thing and flimsy. It has a tendence to wear out and the wires strip off the adapter if you move the stapler around. I have replaced the cord. Now it is necessary to replace it again. This is proving difficult to find. So, the product is excellent for 25 sheets, but the bad cord makes it non functional.

Pretty Good Product

By 

from Oklahoma City, OK, USA

Comments about Swingline 502E Electronic Stapler:

This stapler is a workhorse for any office environment. Works exactly as stated on the box. Only drawback is when it’s jammed, it’s jammed. Removing bent staples from it can be a chore for even those folks handy with a screwdriver and needle-nose pliers. But still, this is a quality product.

from Wakefield, VA 23888, USA

Comments about Swingline 502E Electronic Stapler:

I love the electric stapler, makes my like so much easier. The only problem I have had is it gets jammed once in a while, not much, but all staplers do that I believe. Love it, couldn't live without it.

This product is a great help in the office

By 

from Grand Junction, CO, USA

Comments about Swingline 502E Electronic Stapler:

Our office has three or more of these staplers. We have tried other models and they just don't stack up to the whorkhorse that this one is. I am of the female gender and I can repair-unjam these little wonders myself most all of the time and they just keep on stapling. I would very highly recommend this model to anyone looking for a helper. thanks

The product is unreliable

By 

from Queensland, Australia

Comments about Swingline 502E Electronic Stapler:

I purchased four (yes FOUR) of these units and ALL have stopped working with the striker jammed down & won't release. I sought advice on how to fix and have been ignored. The idea and use of the unit is brilliant when working but has an extremely short working life

Handy but not always reliable

By 

from Hamilton, ON, Canada

Comments about Swingline 502E Electronic Stapler:

Love having the ease of stapling with this electric stapler. It gets a little frustrating at times when no staples come out and I need to retry 2,3,4 times for the staple to work. Great for the medium size work load.

Not much better than the smaller model, broke down too early, cannot be repaired. Plastic and it shows.

a bit sensitive

By 

from Houston, TX

Comments about Swingline 502E Electronic Stapler:

The stapler is a bit sensitive to constant use in a university setting. Students using it can jam it regularly. If restricted to staff use, it works very well.

Excellent office tool

By 

from Kansas City, KIS

Comments about Swingline 502E Electronic Stapler:

This product has been one of the best values purchased for the office in time savings. There are mishaps with this stapler on very rare occasions, unlike the manual stapler which jams often and waste our time pulling out the staple and performing the task again. We would not part with our electric Swingline stapler.
