Sorry if this has been posted before and if it sounds too trite. I am based in Singapore and my ASL second edition rule book is starting to show wear and tear.

As such I would like to stick ring enforcers around the punched hole area of the paper. Trouble is I cannot find the large hole size protectors required. The ones sold here are all 0.24 inches (or at least those I can find in numerous bookshops and stationery shops)

Are there any ASLers who knows where I can procure these? If not, where can I order it online?

Again, thanks and apologies for this mundane question.

I use regular sized hole reinforcers, one on each side of the hole, then cover them with a layer of Scotch tape, then punch a hole through the middle.

I used reinforcement on my 1st edition manual (I use page protectors for my 2nd edition now). I had the Same problem finding large enough reinforcers also. I ended up just using the smaller ones and just forcing the rings through, they loosened up and were ok after a few thumb throughs. If you can afford it though, the page protectors are much much better.

Thanks for all the suggestions. It never occur to me to put the normal ring enforcers and punching hole through it and force fit it into the file. Goes to show my one track mind...

The page protector is a great idea. I need to check as the local stores here mostly carry A4. Yeah... and i can thumb through it while munching chips!

Hi Chan,

I am also living in Singapore and "Populars" is selling oversized page protector sheets. They are big enough for US Letter size pages.

Hope it helps.

I don't put any protection on my copy and thats why many of my pages and even the cardstock dividers with all the tables and charts are torn from the binder rings! I did divide chapter E onwards in another binder and I think that helped preserve the other pages.

You might want to see if the A4 ones actually fit - the allegedly A4 ones I use have a fairly loose fit and work fine for the ASL Rulebook pages.

Cheers!

You are right! A4 page protectors fit. I am going to go this route (with a separate binder) to protect my rulebook. Anyone have a rough idea as to how many pages there are in the whole rulebook? Thanks~~
