TO REFILL THE PENCIL:

  1. A small piece of lead may remain inside the pencil. If so, use the wire “refill plunger” that comes with the refills to clear the lead channel. Insert the plunger into the tiny hole at the base of the “U” shape of the pencil (where the index finger rests.) The remaining old lead will be pushed out through the point of the pencil.
  2. Load the new lead into the point of the pencil. To seat the lead into the pencil, firmly push the pencil and lead on a hard surface.
  3. Once the lead is in place, rotate the point to retract the lead into the pencil.

IT’S EASY TO REFILL THE PENCILS, BUT THE FIRST TIME YOU MAY BECOME CONCERNED ABOUT PUSHING TOO HARD ON THE LEAD.

Keep in mind that there is a groove inside the pencil which holds the lead in place — you may feel the lead “pop” into the groove. That groove is tight when the pencil is new, so it will require a good amount of pressure.
