These work as intended,...

These work as intended, but I do have a two gripes:
1) The pencil doesn't go down as far as I had hoped so there is quite a lot of
dead space above the tip of the pencil. This seems to be true for all the
pencils I've tried. This dead space makes the pencil quite a bit longer than
anticipated and makes freshly sharpened new pencils ridiculously long.
2) I wish four could be connected together. They can be (they're basically
restricted construction tetrominos), but not in a line. They can be formed into
square, T, J/L, and S/Z formations. It's a piddly little gripe, but if you've a
flat pencil case, the line formation would be ideal.
Beyond those two things, they are remarkably sturdy and colorful. I do enjoy
that they can connect together to keep things organized/together. They stay on
the pencil without fail and they grip pretty firmly -- so much so I was worried
about damage to the finish of the pencil, but no such thing happened.
All-in-all, I'm pretty pleased with these.
