Abstract

A device for binding together a stack of document sheets and optionally for depositing such a bound stack in a file with a filing mechanism, comprising a base plate to be disposed below the document stack, a cover plate to be disposed on the document stack, at least one flexible binding tongue strip which is fixable and/or fixed to the base plate and whose two binding tongues, for the purpose of binding together the document sheets, are threaded through paired perforations in the document stack and the cover plate and are bent back at the ends on to the cover plate above the document stack, as well as at least one cover rail mountable on the cover plate, including the binding tongue ends, with undercuts on the longitudinal edges for encompassing the longitudinal edges of the cover plate, whereby the cover rail is divided into two in its longitudinal direction, so that the two parts are mountable from opposite end faces on the cover plate.
