Clothespin Pencil Holder

If your pencil keeps falling out of your shirt pocket, there's a solution that is as simple as they come

If your carpenter's pencil slips out of your shirt pocket every time you bend over, you'll appreciate this simple solution submitted by Fine Homebuilding reader David Halé from Plainfield, Vt. All you need to do is file a groove into your pencil, bend the spring arm of a clothespin into the notch, and clip it on.
