Swingline Paper Shredder: Old Idea, New Convenience


Icon-tradiction

The paper clip we used for testing was longer than the 1/4-inch maximum specified in the instruction manual, yet it passed through the shredder unharmed. Why did we use a paper clip that was larger than that allowable in the instruction manual? Be cause an icon on the machine itself (shown next), which we saw first, indicated that paper clips of that size were acceptable.
