Double Barrel Pen Clip set of 2
Work within its confines...
Yes it can scratch large pens and doesn't stick like superglue to your notebook, but within the confines of the product its quite useful, allowing me to clip a pair of instruments to a notebook, then pop the clip off the notebook to work at my desk. I generally place the clip on the end of the notebook that falls as "up" inside of my work bag, precluding the falling off inside the bag problem, and even then I wouldn't clip a pen outside of a notebook that I wasn't willing to get banged up a little inside of my bag. And it certainly adds a nice Art Deco-like touch to my desk.

Good, just not for me.
While this is a great product, I ended up not being able to use it like I'd hoped. My notebooks don't close well if it's inside, and if it's outside things don't stack nicely. Also, if you plan to clip it to an regular spiral agenda, it falls off quite easily; it really needs to be clipped to something thicker. Wish it would have worked for me, but just wasn't what I need.

Perfect for clipboard
My wife's caregivers use a Medical Clipboard & Patient Chart Holder to log activities related to her wellness. We were constantly losing the pens that we clipped on the metal cover. However, once we started using the double barrel pen clip we immediately stopped losing pens. It is a perfect solution.
There is one caution. Because the clipboard goes everywhere, in and out of canvas bags with her medical binders, the holder kept sliding around on the metal cover. So a little duct tape on the inside fixed the problem.

Double Clip is Plenty of Nothing
I really needed some way to hold a pen in my Circa notebooks but this isn't it. (I LOVE Circa, but find the attached leather pen loop is not the most efficient.) The clip slides off plastic. One of the clips ended up in the bottom of my purse, which defeats the purpose of using a clip at all and the other slipped off my notebook at work and has disappeared.
The whole thing is large and clunky, but manages to be too small for my larger pens. I use Rotring Cores at work because I need a wider pen for extensive writing and this clip does not hold them. (I even tried wedging the pen between the two little cylinders but that doesn't work any better than the regular method.) I'm really glad this was on sale but even so it's money down the drain.

Can't get enough
After I ordered the first two, I quickly realized that I had more notebooks that required a cool, convenient and stylish way to keep my writing/drawing tools near by.

Pretty Good, Except for What I Needed
I have the Circa Junior, which has one pen slot and I really needed a second pen slot, so I thought this would be perfect for what I needed. I like having two pens on hand because I sometimes end up at a meeting with a pen that runs out of ink. With a spare, there are no worries. This product would be perfect except for the fact that there are two pen slots. No matter where you clip it on to the Circa Junior, it ends up underneath the writing surface, making it annoying and useless. I am going to see if I can find a way to pry off the second holder so that there is only one (the outermost one) for the functionality that I need.

I have a lot of notebooks, and many don't have a pen holder. This fixes it. It's very functional, but could be prettier.
One nice thing - it does not scratch the pens, and adjusts to just about every size.

Astoundingly Simple and astoundingly useful
I think there should be a reward for items that make life easier. If there was such an award, I'd nominate this pen clip. It's 2 inches of metal that protects peace of mind. All the minutes lost looking for a pen, not only lost pens, but pens that are merely out of reach.
I have one on my checkbook and another on my stack of Index cards that I use to track action lists and projects.
It's look is simple and clean. The clip is tight enough for paper covers and has enough give for thick book covers.
I ordered a second set to put it on my clipboard when I need it and slip it over project files folder when I'm in a meeting.
Worth every dime.

The BEST thing ever!
I use it with my moleskine planner--allows me to keep one pen and one pencil. While it may scratch higher end pens, at least you know they won't be going anywhere!

Pretty but hurts
I originally purchased a set of these in hopes to use with my molskine.
Good: They look pretty and suspend the pen sightly at a distance from the cover. Your friends will definitley look impressed.
Bad: Scratces thick pens. You heard me correctly, thies will scratch your nice pen if it has a wide barrel. thank god i found this out on my work pen. When attached to a hard cover it will cause damage to the leather, but works fine with soft covers. The inside portion of the clip will also lift the cover from the front page creating a gap.
