Made-To-Order (MTO) Fastener Folders
Top Tab and End Tab

Folders with Factory-Installed Fasteners

Top tab or end tab manila, pressboard, kraft and colored folders can be ordered with fasteners factory-installed in any of eight different positions. Several folders with fasteners in position 1 or positions 1 & 3 are listed as stock items in this catalog. Other positions must be ordered on an MTO basis.

Exact placement of the fastener is based on standard letter or legal sized folders. Any deviation from standard positions must be detailed on your order and would be priced and processed as a special made (SP) item.

Fastener Styles

MTO factory-installed fasteners are available in four styles. Choose the style and capacity that best fits your needs.

“2S” Style Fasteners

A strong fiber base bonds the Fastener treated with SafeSHIELD™ Coated Fastener Technology to the inside of folders. Fastener is not visible from the outside of the folder. Available in 2” capacity for 2-3/4” C-C punched papers.

“K” Style Fasteners

All metal fastener with brown enamel finish. Recessed into the folder from the outside, "K" style fasteners provide superior strength to hold large amounts of papers. Available in 2" capacity for 2-3/4" C-C punched papers only.

“B” Style Fasteners

“2U” Style Fasteners

The flexible design of this fastener allows folders to function like ring binders. Self-adhesive base attaches to any folder. Available in 2" capacity for 2-3/4" C-C punched papers.

How To Order MTO Fastener Folders

Stock numbers for MTO fastener folders are determined by adding an "F" to the folder stock/item number as a prefix, and by indicating the style of fastener and the desired position(s) after a slash mark. Use the stock numbers from the chart below to indicate the style of fastener. Refer to the illustrations shown for fastener locations. If more than one fastener is to be installed, insert an ampersand (&) between the position numbers.
