Mechanisms are devices that translate force into movement. The user will activate one part of a mechanism, such as a lever, which then drives other parts of the device, such as a moving arm, until the result is achieved. In the world of office stationary, ring binders reply on such a mechanism to work properly. This mechanism is designed to let the user open the rings easily, while also holding the rings tightly shut when necessary.

Buyers of office supplies and ring binders can find mechanisms from suppliers at, for wholesale parts and replacements. There are several sizes and ranges of ring binder mechanism, with the best known being the lever arch.

Standard ring binders work by securing metal rings into a metal spine, held tight by springs. The rings are split at the top, forming a pair of claws. The mechanism lets the user prise the rings apart, where they will stay, until the paper has been placed over the claws. The claws can then be closed, snapping shut tightly. This keeps the paper in place, allowing pages to be turned, added and removed with ease. The rings used can vary in shape, depending on the user’s need, from D shaped to Q shaped.

Lever arch mechanisms go a step further and support larger ring binders, which must hold thick, heavy stacks of paper. To enable the longer rings to have a tighter grip, lever arch binders are operated by an actual lever rather than manually prising the rings apart. The mechanism turns the motion of the lever into the movement of the rings.

Binder mechanisms are always needed by offices, becoming a valuable wholesale item alongside folders, binders & clipboards.
