You know when you have sheets of paper fitted into a ring binder (eg some workshop manuals) and the holes made by the hole punch start to tear (eg most workshop manuals)...well there used to be little sticky round things to reinforce the hole. I can't find them, and I must admit to not having resorted to Google, but you used to be able to buy them in any newsagent...can't find 'em.
Or is there a better way?

Hi Danny,

I know exactly what you mean.

Try Officeworks or other stationery suppliers.

You're showing your age Danny...those little reinforcement rings disappeared at about the same time as the DOS operating system. The only other way is to glue strips of thin card to the page edge and re-punch the locating holes...very time consuming!

Herb, our Officeworks is the size of a medium aircraft hangar and they all run off and hide as soon as you (I?) walk in.

Vince , definitely don't have long enough to live!

Only problem with them is that they triple the page thickness, so you can't have too many pages in the ring binder.

This is what our Officeworks is offering. They look a bit weird to me.
