I’ve seen a few post with Zebra Sharbo XLT pens and thought I’d submit this mod I made to mine. I have been carrying an ipad stylus and a Sharbo on me everyday. I found that the iPad capacitive stylus tips are about the same size as the rubber tip on the Sharbo XLT. After taking off the cap that covers the eraser, its easy to pop the rubberized piece out and insert the rubber tip of a stylus. i used a Boxwave iPad stylus that I wasn’t using. I did have to wrap a little clear tape around the base of the stylus tip to get a good tight fit. The stylus tip is hollow and fits over the eraser. One less item i have to carry with me everyday.
Editor’s Note: Cool mod, looks really clean too. Good idea for those out there with a Sharbo and an iPad. Thanks for sharing~
All too often, pocket multitools either try to do way too much or simply not enough to justify carrying one. There's the 25-in-1 tool without a single usable feature, or the overbuilt hunk of metal that only opens bottles. But BIGiDESIGN's new Kickstarter project, the Titanium Pocket Tool (TPT), shows plenty of promise. It balances size, functionality, and aesthetics often sacrificed for an exhausting list of features.
The TPT's small enough for keychain or coin pocket carry, yet big enough to give you a solid grip on it. Each tool packs in 15 wrench sizes, a bottle opener, a hex bit driver, and a flathead screwdriver/pry bar—all while maintaining excellent ergonomics. A hidden magnet in its central slot holds two types of inserts in place. You can configure the TPT with a double-sided, finger-safe box opener/camping fork or a standard utility blade.
Best of all, the TPT's grade 5 titanium construction allows it to stay small, rigid, and durable enough for daily use while carrying as slim as just a pair of house keys. See the Titanium Pocket Tool's unique design in action and pledge for your own on Kickstarter.
