You will need:
  • A pencil with a diameter of 6.5 mm
  • A ring magnet type R-10-07-03-DN
Lay the magnet on the table, stick the pencil inside the ring, finished!
If you use natural wood pencils, you won't have the problem of rubbing the paint off.
Important information: This doesn't work equally well for all brands of pencils as different manufacturers make pencils of different diameters. If necessary, you may have to file down the pencil end for the ring magnet to fit.

Note from the supermagnete team: Many of the pencils tested by us had a larger diameter and wouldn’t fit through the hole of a ring magnet type R-10-07-03-DN. If you prefer not to file down your pencil, we suggest the following possible solutions:
  1. Use the next larger ring magnet R-12-09-1.5-N. This diameter is too big for pencils, so you need to wrap your pencils with clear tape first. Then you can slide the ring magnet over it.
  2. Choose a pencil with an eraser tip. The rubber is easier to adjust to the diameter of the ring magnet. With this option, we recommend attaching the magnet with a little bit of glue. Otherwise, when you remove the pen, the magnet will stick to the wall and fall off the pencil.


Afterwards you can attach the pencil horizontally to a piece of metal (like a table leg, as shown here) ...
... or even vertically.
You'll never need to search for your pencil again!
If you don't want to buy the pencil and the magnet separately, you can purchase the complete magnetic pencil as well as many other cool products at klangspiel.ch
Additional advantage: The shopping list can be fastened on the fridge with the pencil. Great idea - and so simple!
