Description: A rectangular pouch with sewn in weighted segments and a hook&loop fastener.
Materials/Construction: Blue stretch nylon tricot fabric, (lead free) steel shot, and a hook&loop strip.
Instructions: The recommended installation is to lay the weight flat on a table and roll it up around a pencil, securing it with the hook&loop strip. The PW 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 effective.
Colours/Size/Packaging: The PW is available in blue. It is approximately 3” x 5” (flat), and about 7/8” diameter when wrapped around a writing instrument. It weights approximately ¼ pound. Sold individually.
Comments: The PW can be used with most writing instruments or colouring tools. It can be used alone or in conjunction with most of the commercially available pencil grippers. Hand washing and air-drying is recommended. To prevent the PW from slipping on smooth glossy pencils, wrap a rubber band around the pencil prior to rolling on the PW (see photo). WARNING: This product contains small parts which could present a choking hazard. To insure the safety of the user, adequate supervision is recommended.
