The carpenter’s retractable pencil holder is a handy device that consists of a reel-box, string, and rubber grip. It allows you to insert a pencil into its rubber grip for easy access when you need it.
The metal clip on the back of the reel-box allows you to attach it to a work-belt or pocket.
The string can be extended from the reel-box when you need to use your pencil and will automatically retract when you let go of it, reducing the risk of it being lost or broken.
