Pen Cozy, Fisher matte black pen clip, and rubber grip from another pen!

Where do you find the little pen cozy for the top? I like the idea of putting a grip from another pen - think I'll try that tonight.

I have a feeling I'm going to wrap duct tape around mine when it arrives to make it grippier without adding bulk. Then I'm keeping it in a Smencil case as some other poster suggested.. It's going to look pretty crunky. :D (what it looks like is largely irrelevant!)

As it has an internal power source, it never gets hot or anything does it? I'm guessing not. That's never been something I've had to think about with Wacom pens.

I think duct tape will probably leave a sticky residue on the pencil. If you decide to use a tape, try to get gaffer tape or painter's masking tape instead, which won't leave stickiness on the pencil when you remove it.

Just use Goo Gone and any residue will be gone-gone.

I did the same thing with the rubber pen grip and the apple Pencil cozy for the cap and adapter. I didn't put a pen clip on mine though. I had a really tight Pen grip on it, but I couldn't get it through my Case pencil loop on the side. I found one from a little thicker Pen, that slides on and off easily. It keeps my pencil from dropping out of the loop, Pencil cozy on one end and the rubber grip on the other end. Works for me, not worried about it slipping out now.

Nice skin. Does it add any grip to the pencil? It is too slippery for me the way it is now.
I ordered it anyway to try it out. Should come by Saturday according to tracking. The slickwraps version may have more texture for grip but I read that dbrand skins fit better overall.

Right now I'm using a Sharpie cap!

That's the missing 'accessory' for my pencil. I tried caps from 2 different sizes is Sharpies, one was too large and one was too small. So you remember which kind you used?
