Amazing pen for a keyring....
May 17, 2012
Amazing pen for a keyring. Best one I've ever used because it's so short and
easy to carry, yet expands to a reasonable length. I immediately bought several
in different colors because I wanted to be sure I'd always have one handy.
I did have the problem of the pen opening by accident and lost a couple that
way. Finally solved the problem with an o-ring (from the local hardware store)
that fits around the top of the pen just below the wide end part. The o-ring
narrows the gap between the pen and cap so that it takes a little more effort to
push them together to release the cap. It has worked perfectly ever since.
O-rings in basic black are a perfect match for the black penpod, but I've never
seen o-rings in colors. So I use small rubber bands that match the colors of the
caps, and with several twists around the pen, they make passable substitutions
for o-rings. I found tiny, bright colored rubber bands in the hair accessories
department of my local pharmacy that work quite well.
