SureHook™ Product Raves
Read what people are saying about Pendaflex® SureHook™ Hanging Folders!
This is a very cool product: Sure Hook Hanging File Folders work unlike any other hanging file folder by 1) not binding up on the file drawer rails and 2) manage to be accommodating to documents. PLUS, they are heavy duty enough so the hanging file can hold folders and can put up with being overstuffed with bulging heavy folders.
Unlike the old way of using solid sheet metal straps riding on metal file folder rails, this product uses a plastic hook structure in place of the old metal file support. The plastic glides over the rails better than the punched sheet metal hooks. And because they glide better, they don't bind, scrape and then pop off. So even if this was all these do, that would be cool, right?
Well, this hanging file also uses a spring that is concealed in the reinforced cardboard. The spring allows the hook straps to flex, and thus stay on the rails instead of popping off. If you have worked with files, you know exactly what I mean.
No fuss, no muss, these are brilliant!
The hanging file folder isn't something you'd expect to differ much in quality from one brand to another. In this case, the new style really is an improvement.
If you're accustomed to having hanging file folder slip down, slink off to the side, and tear, you'll be impressed by these. They're sturdier, more stable, and generally better behaved.
That's enough for me, but this grouping is also nice for color-coding and comes with label-holders. You couldn't ask for more.
Not many people are passionate about file folders, but as a lawyer I am one of the few. I love these folders. These folders are much easier to move across the rails when they are full and they don't get bent when they are filled to capacity. They also stay on the rails a lot better because the hooks are bigger. There's nothing so frustrating in filing as having a bunch of folders slip off the rail, spill everything out under the other folders, and realizing that you have to deconstruct the whole set up just to put things right while you are in the middle of looking for some document that you need right away. Problem solved.
The change they made was using larger, plastic hooks and spring-loading them. The hooks slide easier than the rougher metal hooks and seem just as sturdy. Also, the spring-loading allows the hangers to flex without warping. Its such a minor difference in design but it makes a huge difference in practice, especially if you have larger files.
