Yes, the pen clip has a pretty tight grip on the pen, but you have to hold on to
the round part (the part that's wrapped around the pen) when you want to clip it
to something thicker than a few sheets of paper.
The clip itself (err..the "tail" part, meaning the section that you actually use
to clip the pen to other things) is very strong, so you really have to push it
up to attach it to things. Of course, this means the clip has a strong grip, but
that's not very useful when your pen goes flying off in the process of clipping
it to something else.
The first time I tried to clip my Kaweco pen to a notebook, that happened and I
nearly had a heart attack before catching my pen in mid-air.
I guess the trick is to hold on to your pen by the round part of the clip before
clipping it to other things...to ensure that the entire pen gets clipped, not
just the pen clip.
Otherwise, it's shiny, pretty, and totally adjustable between Kaweco pens!
(Sorry for the excessive use of the word "clip". I couldn't think of a better
synonym...hope this makes sense as a review, too.)
Good addition to the sport model. The clip doesn't slide off the pen easily,
which is the only thing I feared, so I don't have to worry about losing it when
clipped to something. Nice quality metal as well.
I was hesitant about using this slip on clip with my Kaweco sport because I was
concerned that the clip would slip off the pen when I put it into my pocket. I
was pleasantly surprised that it grips the pen cap snugly enough to clip onto
some of my thicker pockets without sliding off the cap. I did not want the
Classic sport to become a pants pocket pen or one that I had to dig for, and
this clip has certainly filled the bill for me.
I prefer to carry my pens clipped to a shirt pocket. With this clip, it's a
constant worry that the clip will come off when I do this. With the hexagonal
bodies on my plastic Classic Sports, it isn't really needed to keep them from
rolling off a table, either. With some care, the clip probably will stay on the
pen, but it's too bad that Kaweco makes these an after market accessory, rather
than a permanent part of their pens.
