The products are reliable. I trust Swingline. I work in the school district. I've changed position a couple time. This is one of the items I have purchased over and over.
This slot punch is very easy to use. I had learned how to make a holder for a candy bar in a craft class and needed to cut a slot to tie a ribbon through. This punch cost more than some other types, but I'm glad I bought it because it is so easy to use. The other punches were either too small for a 3/8" ribbon or required a hard surface to punch against. With this, I could just punch without needing a hard surface.
