Yard-O-Led How To Install Ballpoint Refill



Recommended Posts

I just bought a used YOL ballpoint. The instructions say: repel (withdraw) point and continue to unscrew the top. But it won't turn further, and I'm reluctant to use force. Am I missing something?

I believe there are two types of YOL B, but that the refills only fit the more modern type.

 

YOL will convert the older BP's to take the new refill at a modest cost (£15 -£18?) or will fit complete new mechanism for a higher charge.

 

I took advantage of the former service a year or so back and YOL were quick and efficient.

Thanks, Northlodge. But first I'd like to see what sort of refill it takes and I can't even unscrew the cap to look. The instructions say, keep turning counter-clockwise, but the cap won't turn.

If it's a REALLY old YOL biro (eighties or older), it will be a friction-fit cap that comes off in the same manner as their pencil caps, and the biro refill will come out with the cap (again, a friction-fit).
