A quick-binder is a tool to bring papers together to make a file. The quick-binder consists of a narrow metal strip that is attached to a strip of cardboard or plastic. The end of the metal strips are bent, so they fit through the perforator holes in the paper. Atop of the papers, the strip can be bent flat again, so the papers are kept together. It usually comes with a cardboard or plastic protective strip to prevent damage to the papers.
