It's so simple, I can't believe that something like this has never occurred to me before.  I actually avoided buying a few pens because of a bent clip, now I know what to do.

All the images are gone—thanks to Photobucket. I think I get what was described, but I'm not sure. Can anyone repost the images? Please!

 

Pax,

John

Thank you Antonioaz., That's pretty much what I imagined, but the photos helped a great deal.

Thank you very much!

The description alone was precise enough, but seeing the pictures is (believing) reassuring.

You should know how grateful I am for your help if I tell that some of these pens had been waiting for this for a long time... 

Cheers!

Thanks for the suggestions on this thread.  I just fixed the clip on one of my Parker vacs. I used a letter opener instead of a key and placed a thin piece of paper under the clip against the pen to prevent any chance of scratching the pen body.  Worked great!!!!


Did it work on a Junior Debutante clip? Mine is loose and its reaaaaally short.
