New Levenger Pen-holders

Apparently you can't post links here (which is kinda lame, btw!), but have you guys seen the new "Double Barrel Pen Clip" on Levenger's site? I wonder if it's big enough to slide into the cover of a moleskine. The clip part looks rather thin.

The other thing that looks interesting is their new book bungees with a double pen loop. I can't decided which one to order!

Are you talking about ...

the Writer's Book Bungee ?
You CAN post links if you do it carefully :)

I stand corrected !

Double Barrel Pen Clip

I have these (one of each) and they are excellent.

If you are undecided between the Clip and the Bungee, do what I do -- get both !

wrong side

Hi Ygor,

I have one of those ones you have too (like the one from pencil things, but from a different brand), but I don't understand how to use them. If I put them on a notebook and want to put a pen in it, the pen sticks out a few centimetres above the top of the notebook. Don't you have that problem? Can you point me to a picture of one of them in use?
I see that the levenger ones do have this problem fixed by making the spiral turn 90 degrees from the clip part. Now if only levenger shipping wasn't so bad internationally...

Two Possibilities:

Both involve using a piece of cover/divider material

  1. Cut a horizontal slot for the clip
  2. Cut the top or bottom third of the divider off

I will try to remember to do pix, but please do not hold your breath. I'm real busy at home -- Spring Cleaning, Code Writing, Parenting, etc.

Are the pen loops elastic?

Hi Ygor,

It's hard to tell from the Levenger site if the loops that hold the pens are made of soft elastic or some other material. Can you clarify?

Thanks,
Walter

Yes

It is a metal spring - kinda like a very small, tight Slinky

scratching

So, if you put a nice pen, or not necessarily nice but dearly loved nonetheless, into the small tight slinky several times a day, would it scratch the finish?

-kmorris

Probably not

IMHO anyway

Maybe not your vintage pen in it...

Use a nice writing user grade pen so you don't have to worry about the finish. I wonder what kind of glue will bond to the plastic Levenger uses for the translucent Circa notebooks? Maybe we could make our own elastic loops for pens.

Pen clip and book bungie

These are both neat products. I never saw such a pen clip before, and have looked high and low for solutions like this. Either one would be useful. Thanks for the tip!

I just received a sample

I just received a sample from Ryan and tried one on my hardcover Moleskine. I found that the Moleskine's hardcover is too thick for the clip, but the thinner Cahier cover can take this pen clip. So maybe a softcover Moleskine can, too.

Hope the above helps.

Thanks for the follow-up

Thanks for the follow-up chet. I actually went with a Booksling because I remembered them from a long time ago and wanted to give some money to the Little Guy. It's very similar to the book bungee, but I didn't need a big plastic book mark. So far it hasn't left my moleskine. And the mini one has worked out *perfectly* in my leather cPDA.

I <3 pen clips

I got my double-barrel pen clips yesterday, and I'm loving them. One is on the compact Circa notebook I'm using for my calendar and notes right now, and the other is on my pocket Moleskine (a tight fit, but works great). No more digging for pens! Yay!

metal, plastic or???

Steff-

What are they made out of? I'm dying to know! Thanks.

Metal.

thanks

but weird. :-)

-Jon

Heh.

They are kinda strange. I like them, though. They're freaky but they work. My only issue is that they don't work with pens that have thick grip sections. I was hoping to put my 4-in-1 pen (2 ballpoints, pencil, and Palm stylus) in one, but it didn't fit. Ah well. It will fit a fountain pen and a pencil, though. So that works.
