I RECOMMEND THIS FOR:
Our plastic oval binding rings are similar to our round plastic snap lock rings, in that they have a peg-and-hole closure and are made of a semi flexible plastic that does not require a hinge. They offer a bit more capacity, since one direction of the ring is larger, measuring 2” long and just under 1” wide on the inside diameter. Since they are made of plastic, they are best for lightweight materials, such as paper, and are a popular with businesses as a way to hang signs from baskets (to say things like “inbox”, etc) and for retail shops for the same sign display solution.
WHAT I LIKE ABOUT THEM:
By now, you may have read my other binding ring reviews (or you can check them out here: loose leaf metal, round plastic snap lock, screw lock metal rings, plastic overlap rings) and honestly, my obsession with binding rings is just as strong with these plastic oval ones. They are fun to use, and can be used for….well, basically anything that your imagination can think of. I even used some in my Halloween costume last year when I was a robot. Far more commonly, though (lol), they are used to hang signs and bind paper. They are a cool solution for machine user manuals, as you can bind the paper and hang the manual by the machine so it is always within reach. And since they are oval shaped, they won’t spin around if you use them to hang a sign on, say, a wire basket. They are flexible so you can move the plastic to close and open the rings easily, without the requirement for a bulky hinge on the opposite end. The peg-in-hole closure will actually snap into place to keep your items secure until you re-open it.
THINGS TO CONSIDER:
Plastic oval rings only come in one size, so there is not much wiggle room to how much paper they can bind or how they can be used. They also come in white or clear, while our round plastic rings also have a black option; so the colors are a bit limited. And they are not quite as economically priced as the round rings; although, keep in mind that they do offer about double the capacity because of the long end. They are also sold in packs with 100 rings, which is the minimum quantity you can order (which can be more than some customers need). If you need bulk pricing for 1,000 or more rings, though, we can often offer bulk pricing if you call (866)537-2244 for a quote.
THE BOTTOM LINE:
Plastic oval rings are awesome, just like our round plastic rings, but offer that extra capacity with the long edge, making them even more versatile. This shape helps keep signage in place, making them a perfect choice for retail stores and businesses, while the lightweight material makes them great for documents that may be handled often or given to traveling sales people.
If plastic rings seem too fragile for your needs, consider our standard metal loose leaf binding rings, which are the most popular rings we offer. As also offer screw lock rings as a durable metal solution. Still not quite sure what you need? Call customer service at (866)537-2244 for some guidance, or to request a sample. You can also request a sample by filling out this sample request form and returning it to us.
At this time we only offer the one 2" L x 15/16" W" size, however, take a look at our various other binding ring options, which include round plastic rings, overlap plastic rings, metal rings, and more available in a much larger variety of sizes.
Our plastic book binding rings are built to last, manufactured in the USA with top-quality materials.
