Plastic overlap binding rings are popular for customers who value the speed-of-bind over everything else. Because there is no snapping closure mechanism (such as what is found on our snap lock rings) adding and removing pages from our plastic overlap book binder rings can be done faster and with less user strain. Since they require no tools and little effort to work with, some customers have called them the best binding rings out there. The plastic material is durable, but lightweight, so they can hang from baskets, other paper, fabrics, and more without adding weight or breaking. Easy-to-use and affordable, overlap book rings measure 3/4" on the inside diameter* and are available in either clear or white.

I RECOMMEND THIS FOR:
Plastic overlap rings are ideal for people who want to bind paper, or hang lightweight signs, and don’t want to have to hassle with snap closure. The overlap design will keep your items semi-secure, making adding and removing items from the ring fast.
WHAT I LIKE ABOUT THEM:
The overlapping round shape makes adding or removing pages easier than traditional snap lock plastic rings, as it does not require you to press closed or pull open any locks. Sometimes pressing closed and opening those snap rings can be hard on the fingers if you have to do it all the time, so the overlap rings are a good alternative when working with larger quantities. The plastic is rigid, but semi-flexible, so there is a little give, which makes it easier to insert items onto the rings. They are fun, functional, and professional; perfect for users of all kinds, including individuals, retail, offices, schools, and more. They are also very economically priced, at just over 12¢ each. Maybe I am biased because I am obsessed with binding rings, but I love them.
THINGS TO CONSIDER:
Overlap plastic rings are only available in one size, which is approximately ¾” on the inside. This will limit the uses and page capacity. In addition, they come in only white or clear options, so the color selection is pretty small. And since they don’t actually seal or snap closed, there is a risk for your items to slip off is the ring is spun in place, which may happen naturally over time. You should also keep in mind that they are made of plastic, not metal, so cannot withstand real heavy items being hung.
THE BOTTOM LINE:
Overlap plastic binding rings definitely have a use in retail and offices, and even for binding pieces of paper, but they are permanently open, which means are not nearly as secure as plastic snap lock rings. That being said, however, they are an awesome solution for those who need a quick-edit ring.
