Introduction: Easy Peasy Magnetic Pen

You have a fridge or metal door and need a pen.  This one is always there! No glue necessary! (but optional!)

Step 1: Find Bic "Stic" Pen

Standard pen. found in junk drawers all over the country.

Step 2: Get Magnet(s)

rare earth magnets from Harbor Freight. 10 for a buck fifty.

Step 3: De-cap Pen and Place Magnet

Put magnet in cap. Fits nicely.

Step 4: Replace Cap on Pen

Pretty much put cap on pen bottom end.  

Not point end.

Step 5: AH HA! GENIUS! IT WORKS!

No glue needed but you can super glue the cap in place for a firm fix.

Cool idea but let's the pens tip out to dry... Still, 3 stars.
