Pencil WeightTM. Can be used with most writing instruments or coloring tools. Designed to use alone or in conjunction with most of the commercially available pencil grippers. Constructed of durable Tricot, and filled with 1/4 pound of (lead free) steel shot. It is 33/4” long, and has
a diameter of approximately 7/8” when wrapped around a pencil. The recom- mended installation is to lay the weight flat on a table and roll it up around a pencil, securing it with the hook and loop strip. The pencil weight can be positioned 1/2” above the pencil point and be used as a “grip.” Or place the weight 1” to 2” up from the pencil point, and the user can grip the pencil itself. Both positions are equally effective.
