The PencilWeight™ is constructed of durable Tricot, and is filled with ¼ pound of (lead free) steel shot. It is 3 ¾” long, and has a diameter of approximately 7/8” when wrapped around a pencil.
The recommended installation is to lay the weight flat on a table and roll it up around a pencil, securing it with the Velcro strip.
The pencil weight can be positioned 1/2” above the pencil point and be used as a “grip”, or it can be positioned 1-2” up from the pencil point and the user can grip the pencil itself. Both positions are equally effective.
Hand washing and air-drying is recommended.
To prevent the PencilWeight™ from slipping on a glossy pencil, just wrap a rubber band around the pencil prior to rolling on the PencilWeight™ (see photo).
The PencilWeight™ is available in blue, and is sold individually.
