Nice pen but it pulls the catch off the ring ...
on November 24, 2014
Nice pen but it pulls the catch off the ring on the first try. A touch of superglue seems to be holding but it's just stupid design by a company whose other stuff is excellent.
The problem is that there is a brief pull needed to extend the pen when you remove it from the small piece that attaches to the ring. The force of the pull needed to get the pen out exceeds the ability of the stupid brass shivs and the whole damn thing comes off. Since there is never a reason that you would want the piece on the ring to come apart, why not just weld the thing on? (or whatever).
It just makes a cool-looking and rather useful device a useless, guaranteed-to-be-lost waste of money.
Now, I'm trying Superglue and it's holding (today). But Superglue has never worked before and I shouldn't have to fix the product after the first time I use it.
Does look good, though.
