Introduction: Great Way to Save Expo Pens

This instructable helps eliminate squished dry-erase pen tips.  Perfect for teachers that have to deal with squished dry-erase pens. 

Step 1: Gather Materials


Expo pen 


A pair of pliers ( I used needle-nosed pliers) 

Step 2: Remove End Cap

Take your pliers and gently pull off the end cap, this may take some force,but don't break it. You should be able to see the ink cartridge, remove it and place the two pieces in a zip-lock bag.

Step 3: Take Off the Chisel Tip

First take off the cap. Then take your pliers and carefully tug on the chisel tip, as it should come off with ease. 

Step 4: Assemble Pen

First, put the dullest side of the chisel tip in first.  Next, take the ink cartridge and find the side with the indentation on it. Drop that side in first. The part of the ink cartridge should have four little dent on it. Finally, you put the end cap on with some force. Now go enjoy your new and sharp expo pen!
