    • TIP: The circled hole has the smallest inner diameter, so if you mold your pen with this hole, you can remove the others without remolding if you are careful not to strip it.

  3. Allow the pen to reform and solidify around the screw for 4 to 5 minutes. If done correctly, the pen will mold completely around the specialized screw and grip it so that it can be twisted out.
