Pencil Keep FAQ

The Pencil Keep is a versatile accessory designed to securely hold carpenter pencils, as well as some conventional lead pencils. It features a 3M adhesive for easy mounting on virtually any surface, making it suitable for various applications.

The Pencil Keep is primarily designed for use in and around the woodworking workshop. However, it's highly adaptable and can be used in any locations where the use and need for a carpenter pencil is in high demand.
We place it on each and every workstation, next to our Glasses Keep, so that there is always a pencil within reach.

The 3M adhesive backing ensures a strong and reliable hold on a wide range of surfaces. Prep the surface to ensure that it is free of oils and dirt. Then simply peel off the backing, press the holder onto the desired location, and it will securely adhere. We recommend applying pressure to the keep for at least 10 seconds and allowing the adhesive to fully set for a few minutes before using to ensure a secure hold.

Yes, whereas most of our customers use the Pencil Keep specifically to hold carpenter pencils, the internal flaps can also hold most conventional lead pencils. The other edges of the Pencil Keep are tapered. This allows for a pen or permanent marker to be hung to the Pencil Keep using the pen clip. In addition, some items such as scissors, small pliers, or other straight tools can be organized with the Pencil Keep.

The Pencil Keep is crafted from sturdy ABS plastic, ensuring durability and long-lasting performance. It's designed to withstand everyday wear and tear.

Yes, the 3M adhesive provides a strong hold but can be removed without damaging most surfaces when done correctly. We recommend following the adhesive removal guidelines provided by 3M.
** Please use caution when applying it to a wooden surface. The heavy duty adhesive may remove paint, stain or even wood fibers when removed.

Cleaning is simple. If needed, just wipe it clean with a damp cloth or a mild soapy solution, and it will be as good as new.

No. We can only ensure that the Pencil Keep works with conventional carpenter pencils. That being said, the Pencil Keep will also work with most conventional lead pencils. The outside walls of the Pencil Keep are also tapred so that they can accommodate the hanging of a pen or permanent marker on the Pencil Keep.

Yes, the Pencil Keep is designed to withstand a range of temperatures, making it suitable for use in environments with temperature fluctuations, such as warm or humid workshops.
We mount them on rolling miter saw stands that are often used outdoors for prolonged periods of time.

The Pencil Keep come in a pack of 6 holders. The feature vibrant colors to match your power tools or allow them to stand out for easy identification. Feel free to place them where ever you like as you'll have enough.

The Pencil Keep can only accommodate one carpenter pencil at a time. However, up to two pens or permanent markers can be hung along with one carpenter pencil at any given time.

If you are transporting equipment, like rolling miter saw stands or other equipment, it is advised that you remove your pencils. Even though we are very confident in the holding ability of the Pencil Keep, the vibrations caused by a moving vehicle will cause the pencil work its way loose.

Certainly. Any where you need the use of a carpenter pencil or other pens and pencils, the Pencil Keep is a great option.
