Who would install a clip or roll stopper for me?

I have a very nice little Franklin-Christof 45L, which is clipless. I never had a clipless pen before and I find it annoying.  It is always trying to roll off my desk, and I can't take it anywhere because I need to clip it to my purse pocket or my shirt.  I know custom pen makers may install a variety of clips on their own pens, but is there someone who would install a clip on a pen made elsewhere?

Would the cheap little snake rings you can buy off ebay work for you on your pen? If so, they just slide on, or you can prise them open a bit to put on in order to avoid scratches.

As a last resort I guess. Not a fan of them. Would prefer an actual clip.

You might be able to pick up a vintage style clip that has the adjustable thick collar. I've seen them on ebay from time to time, although matching them to pens is limited.

Look at some small, AA battery size flashlights. These often have a clip that can be repurposed. For something fancier you might see a local jeweler.

Do remember that the items on your bucket list have an expiration date.

I will offer an easy solution for your consideration.  All you need is an inexpensive ball shape earring stud.  Cut the post off, add a drop of super glue and stick it on the cap where you want.  Let it dry and problem solved.

Shoot, I think I have something like that in my jewelry box that I haven't opened for years  ....

What's the diameter of the pen's cap?  Because it occurred to me that Kaweco sells clips separately from the Sports.  

Kinda in agreement about the snake rings -- although I'm betting you could find a kid's ring that ISN'T a snake -- all you would need is to have some sort of setting on it.

But that idea of ParramattaPaul's of using an old earring stud is also a good  one.
