Additional Pen Loop

We all like the option of extra pen loops and we have in the past seen various options for adding extra pen storage capacity to your Filofax organiser.

But browsing our friends Dodo-Pad website today I noticed a very reasonably priced pen loop that you could use on a Filofax section divider.

Here is a link to it: http://www.dodopad.com/shop/pen-loop.html they come in a range of colours and they are elasticated.

By adding them to a section divider you can of course swap and change the position of the pen holder, remove it completely and no damage will be done to your Filofax.

The different colours would help you colour code your pens for different entries.

Take a look today.

  1. Those are the Leuchtturm-penloops. I have used them and can confirm that they stick rock-solid on their surface. Once stuck, it's hardly possible to remove them. Great stuff!

    1. They are indeed Leuchtturm pen loops - we were so impressed with them we decided to stock them ourselves but we have to stick to their recommended pricing (and Leuchtturm are quite strict!). If you are buying anything else from the Dodo Pad cyberstore then the p&p is less of an issue but I do see that bought alone it would be quite expensive - perhaps it's an opportunity to try a very heavily discounted Dodo Pad A5 or Personal Organiser diary at the same time. #justanidea :)

  2. Fab, thanks! Ordered one, but from Amazon where the postage is 55p cheaper! :-)

    1. I just ordered a couple from Amazon and got free P+P (though only by doing it as two orders... as soon as I put 2 in my basket, the free P+P turned into £1.95)
      I'm going to stick them on dividers so I can move them around, not have them permanently stuck to the binder and be able to move them from binder to binder. (I got 2 - one for the pocket and one for the personal size filo)

  3. Also . . . has anyone ever tried buying a Flex pen loop, punching it and using it in a Filofax? Does it work? I am curious . . .

  4. You can make your own with sticky backed velcro.

  5. I've used these in my Malden. They work particularly well with small barrel pens as the loop is quite small..while elasticized ized it can be mightily difficult to get a larger pen in..i used two in a domino, one on the front inside cover and one on a card holder insert to carry a total of three pens. Really nice! They do indeed stick very well and are unlikely to come off ever..i also have one attached to the inner back cover of my dodopad..

  6. I bought one of these, hoping my Lamy Safari fountain pen would fit but unfortunately it doesn't :(

  7. Lucy - I use flex pen holders in both pocket and personal, works very well for me.

  8. For those of us in the US who might not want to pay shipping for a small item, the Container Store sells something similar.

    I bought one for my mom for Christmas but I don't know if she's used it yet or how the quality is.

    1. Clarification: for those of us who might not want to pay international shipping charges (you will most likely still need to pay shipping if you order from CS's website).

  9. Philofaxy just pushed me over the edge, I ordered two. I've seen these before but finally gave in and ordered. Glad I did, because although the Container Store ones are cheaper, I don't think they ship outside the U.S.

    I hope these fit my fat pens - Pilot Coleto and Uni-ball Style Fit 5-barrels. Been tweaking my pen location for days and it's driving me crazy. (:

  10. I found something similar at Staples where they sell spiral notebooks. It was only available in black but was cheap.
