EZgrip $3.00/3 pk.

EZgrips can be used with any pencil, pen, or pencil-like tool in industry, microelectronics, and medical/dental environments as well as office use. Like the ResQ pen and the EZgrip pen shown above, the patented rubber grip requires no gripping action when a finger is placed on the ridge on top. The rubber composite can be cleaned and chemically sterilized. For larger tools, the grip can be cut along the back, forming the grip around the tool or marker. Friction will usually hold the grip in place due to the light pressure required when using the grip.
