SHP™ is the only binder brave enough to use the word PERFORMANCE as part of its name. Never ever jams as you rapidly turn pages. You can update – remove any single documents without disassembling the binder. Operating instructions printed inside front cover since it is sufficiently different from a typical 3 ring notebook.

A swing hinge binder is a type of binder that uses a unique mechanism for holding and organizing documents. Unlike traditional ring binders that utilize round rings to secure papers, swing hinge binders employ a different approach.

In a swing hinge binder, the mechanism consists of a single continuous hinge along one side of the binder. This hinge allows the binder cover to swing open and closed like a door. Instead of rings, the swing hinge binder typically uses special prongs or clamps that are attached to the binder’s back cover. These prongs or clamps can be opened and closed to hold the pages securely in place.

To add or remove pages, the prongs or clamps are opened, allowing the papers to be easily inserted or taken out. Once the pages are in place, the prongs or clamps are closed, providing a secure grip on the documents. This mechanism allows for quick and efficient organization and manipulation of papers, similar to other binder types.

Swing hinge binders are often used in professional settings such as offices, schools, or legal environments, where frequent document changes and ease of use are important. They can accommodate various paper sizes and can hold a significant number of pages, depending on the specific binder’s capacity.

The swing hinge binder offers an alternative to traditional ring binders, providing a streamlined and convenient method for organizing and accessing documents. It offers a sleek appearance, ease of use, and can be a suitable option for those who prefer a different mechanism than the more common ring-based binders.
