What is the weight of this chair for transporting? Someone else asked and the answer said 12 lbs. I don't believe that is correct, however.
I have difficulty walking and get tired real fast from my cancer. Using the wheelchair was to much, it was heavy and oversized. Since purchasing this transport wheelchair it has been so much easier for me to go out. Before I would feel bad about going out and my husband having the push the wheelchair. Now this chair is so much lighter then a normal wheelchair. Fits in the trunk of my car without any problems. I would recommend this chair to anyone that had second thoughts. This transport wheelchair is not as bulky as a regular wheelchair....

How to Load an Electric Stapler
Adding some extra convenience to your paper-related projects is easy with an electric stapler. Unlike a regular stapler that requires you to use your hand, an electric stapler simply requires you to move the paper group over a small sensor. A mechanism then launches the staple into the paper with no undue stress. You can even find heavy-duty electric staplers for stapling thick packets of paper and rapid electric staplers for high-volume stapling. However, even the best electric stapler needs to be refilled now and then. Take a look below to learn how to load an electric stapler.
Tips on Choosing the Right Laptop Backpack

Best Ways to Use Paper Shredders
If you're concerned about protecting your personal information and sensitive documents, a paper shredder is an important tool for properly destroying documents. Paper shredders are made with multiple security features. Some shredders cut items into long strips, while cross-cut paper shredders go even further and shred documents into small diamond-shaped pieces. Here are some of the best ways to use a paper shredder to protect your identity and sensitive information. Shred paper documents. Shredding documents containing personal identification reduces the chance of someone obtaining personal information such as your social security number, address, birth date and phone number. Medium-sensitivity documents containing addresses and phone numbers can safely be disposed of with a normal cross-cut or thin strip paper shredder. For more private information and confidential documents, shredders that are medium or high security are the safest selection. These high-end paper shredders cut paper into even smaller pieces. Dispose of media. Some paper shredders are durable enough to destroy CDs and DVDs. As modern life becomes increasingly digital, more and more sensitive information is stored electronically. To protect this data, the right paper shredders reduce CDs and DVDs into jagged shards of plastic, making it impossible for anyone to retrieve sensitive data. Light-duty paper shredders won't shred plastic, but shredders that are medium to heavy duty are capable of shredding CDs and DVDs as well as paper. Destroy old credit cards. Simply breaking an old credit card in half or cutting it up by hand isn't really a safe way to dispose of these easily compromised items. To be sure your credit information is safe, run old or non-used cards through a medium to heavy-duty paper shredder. View All Paper Shredders Back to Guides Directory View All Paper Shredders
