Inserted into the vertical pocket is a removable plastic sheet with three metal rings attached to a metal base. Attached onto the metal rings are sheets of looseleaf ruled paper. The binder is held closed by a zipper that fit around the article. In closed position the binder measures approximately 14” x 12”.
