Had to order another one of these as the original was in a box stolen from my storage when I moved to another state. Got it today and no, couldn't figure out how to unlock the handle either - LOL. Read all the complaints and saw the video included as well. Yes, at the very least there could be a sma...see moreof the reviewer's review

Read the reviews here and what people failed to mention was that it is not the handle that you move left or right - it is the plastic mechanism itself that you move to establish lock or unlock. I found the video on YouTube it is linked here.see moreof the reviewer's review

I like the hole punch very much. I AM ANNOYED that I have to google how to unlock it. Yes, there are arrows on the side of the device, but how hard would it be to put the directions on the box?see moreof the reviewer's review

Love this machine but not impressed with the fact that there are still no instructions in the box after complaints from as far back as 2015(that's how far I read). Took me forever and visiting this site to figure out how to release the punch so it could be used. Hope I never need to adjust the punch...see moreof the reviewer's review

I agree with other comments that figuring out how to unlock it is a pain. They Swingline should include instructions on how to unlock.see moreof the reviewer's review

Put the directions on how to unlock handle SOMEWHERE!!! Also, ease of use is limited because in order to lock or unlock handle the tray has to be removed EVERY time.see moreof the reviewer's review

Who would have thought you needed instructions for a manual paper punch? If is very difficult to figure out how to fix the handle so you can actually insert paper. The "lock" "unlock" positions do not clearly reflect where the handle actually sits: the indicators refer to the lever on the bottom of ...see moreof the reviewer's review

It took me and a coworker about ten minutes to figure out that you have to hold the lever down and slide the arrows left or right to lock/unlock....works great! Just hold down the lever folkssee moreof the reviewer's review
