Double Barrel Pen Clip set of 2
Pens always a problem
I don't know if I will ever be able to solve my pen problems, but this is actually pretty good.
Pens are bulky, they push the circa covers up if they are inside and they grab things in my briefcase or purse if they are on the outside.
This is not a perfect pen holders, but I do like it. What I like about this is that it is adjustable. The slinkly like pen holder will adjust to sizes and you don't have pens jammed in that won't come out.
The ability to unclip and reclip is always very helpful. I can move it if it is annoying me and transfer from one circa binder to another.
I like this better than any other pen holder I have used, but I don't think we will ever completely solve the muli-pen storage challenge on planners and binders.

Double barrel pen clip
This is so simple, and yet so useful! Something to keep your writing implements securely attached to what you write in! I looked at this for awhile, thinking it was pricey for what it was. But recently decided to go ahead and get it! If I have a problem, it is that my husband has come to realize that he always can find a pen if he can locate my calendar! Seriously, I think many of us invest in favorite writing implements, and really miss them when they are lost. So in the end, this simple gadget is worth the investment.

Simple and Convenient
I use this on my leather Circa Notebook, but use with caution because it will leave permanent marks on your cover. But it stays put, and holds my pens, though my second warning is to be careful with your nice pens, because this scratched one of my nice ones, so I mostly just use my cheaper pens that I don't mind getting banged up. It's awkward and you have to use it outside of your notebook or else it won't close properly, but it does its job. If you're looking for a perfect pen holder then you'll always be looking. This is the best pen holder I've found, and I love that it holds two pens. So think it over before you buy, but it's worth the money in my opinion.

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.
