Q: How do you load lead into Papermate clearpoint lead pencil

submitted by Herb - 7 years ago
  • A: it's very easy - the whole eraser cap can be taken off for refilling.

    submitted bysim - 7 years ago
  • A: Hi, Herb! To refill the lead of Paper Mate Clearpoint Mechanical Pencil, unscrew the top of the barrel (colored part of the pencil) and insert the new lead. Screw the top portion of the barrel back. Click the pencil a few times to advance the lead.

  • A: rather than pull out the eraser, you have to pull off the whole back end, which, I think, is always the plastic part that is colored and includes the clip that says "papermate." hope that helps.

Q: Does the grip and/or eraser contain latex?

submitted by Marie - 7 years ago
  • A: No, neither does. I am very sensitive to latex (not quite a full blown allergy but close) and these are the only mechanical pencils I will use.

    submitted byliza - 6 years ago
  • A: Hi, Marie. Any product offered by Paper Mate that is latex-free will have the latex-free claim prominently displayed on the packaging and/or disclosed in the product details on the website. If you do not see the latex-free claim, we cannot guarantee that the product has not been exposed to latex in the manufacturing process.

MaRi - 29 days ago, Verified purchaser
I used to love these pecils I thought they were the best but now they make them so cheap they broke the first time I used them ALL 3! They also feel less sturdy and charge even more. I had to throw all three away as nothing I did would get them to work more then once before clicking for more lead. I don't know if I got a defective pack or what but this NEVER happend before and I have been buying these since 2006. NEVER buying again I might as well burn 8$ infront of my eyes.

thisismyscreenname - 2 years ago, Verified purchaser
When I first bought these they seemed okay, but then in the middle of a math test the pencil stopped working. Thankfully I had a different brand pencil. The pencils continue to randomly work or not work. The tip breaks often, and sometimes spins while I write. One of my classmates bought the same pencils and he has the same complaints.

A shadow of their former self

Note Taker - 2 years ago
I have been buying these particular pencils for probably half a decade now, they lasted a long time until some of the plastic parts wore off or broke off and they started to get the the point of needing to be replaced. I'm not saying that they were perfect- the cap needed a better mechanism to stay on, the rubber at the end has worn off on me before. All I'm saying is that nothing else worked better at this price point. However, at some point in the past year Paper Mate decided to redesign these. And I'm not opposed to that, but within just a few strokes of using these new pencils the lead breaks. No matter if you use light pressure or hold it at the right angle. if you do something wrong the lead breaks. I noticed that these pencils were slightly different than the ones that I had bought before. You can see in the photos how they change the cap and the logo on the pencil but it is almost identical. I did manage to figure out the problem... the lead wiggles just a little bit at the end of the pencil, it's very hard to see, but it is just enough that the lead will break if it catches on something, like when you try to write with it. there is play in the metal tip so that when you are writing with it the friction on the paper creates enough leverage to break the lead. In the redesign, Paper mate forgot to actually make these pencils work like pencils. they're frustrating to work with and are a complete waste of your money. Do not buy them! TL;DR: Pencil lead has too much play at the end of the tip so that the lead breaks VERY easily when you use it. It didn't do this before they redesigned it. Do NOT waste your money on them.

Lead mechanism malfunction

Thumbs down graphic, would not recommend
Ahernandez - 2 years ago, Verified purchaser
I have bought these mechanical pencils on numerous occasions, for some reason they break when I attempt to load more lead. The mechanism to push the lead out stops working, the button you click doesn’t work anymore and it doesn’t push the lead out. I’m uncertain as to why, I put one piece of lead in at a time, and it just stops working- which is really frustrating. I have 3 pencils that are fairly new that I am unable to use now. I really like the comfort of these pencils, and the length of the eraser- obviously just not if I can’t use it.

Bad design

2 out of 5 stars
lee - 2 years ago
I love a good pencil, but this is not it. The button for dispensing the led being in the middle means it sometimes gets clicked accidentally while writing, and then the led snaps off or the metal piece at the tip retracts and the led snaps off. Happens too much and makes writing a pain, especially if rushing through a timed test.

The Best

I love these mechanical pencils. They're thicker which allows the lead not to break with bumps. I find they don't get jammed either.

Snazzylizard - 3 years ago, Verified purchaser
I really liked the way these pencils write, but for about the last year they all stop working with a few weeks of use. I’ve bought this product two different times (at least 6 months apart) and each time the pencils quit working at the part where you push the button to get more lead out. It won’t click all the way and no lead is fed to the tip of the pencil. I’ve taken the pencils apart to troubleshoot, put new 0.5 lead in, but nothing fixes the issue and I have to throw the pencils away once they do this. Due to this happening with all of the pencils, even though they were bought months apart, it seems to be a product issue and not a fluke or a bad batch.

The comfort grip is quite nice and bulky. But I cannot get the eraser to stay in place which drives me mad. Every time I press on the eraser, it retracts making it utterly worthless.

I was excited about these pencils because the lead is advanced from the side and they came with extra erasers and lead. However, the erasers are terrible!! No matter how high or low the eraser is, every time it's used, it ends up twisting back into the pencil. Of course I threw away the package and can't return them now. What a waste of money!
