Greatest invention for the SNC ever!

Cindy Gray on 15th Dec 2022

I wasted my money on the Brother Universal Pen Holder—it won’t hold any pens and I couldn’t get it to tighten properly or get the depth correct. This pen holder does the job flawlessly and with no tearing out your hair. Just follow the simple instructions to put the pen in, tighten the collar and you’re good to go. It really works!

I just got this from the Uk after seeing a couple of you tube videos. I just love them. I can now write with all of my pens and markers. Great product.

ScanNCut Universal Pen Adapter

This product along with the others on here was brought to my attention by John Bloodworth's YT channel. After watching his channel I decided to go ahead and purchase it even though I have the original Brother one. You can use any size of pen, pencil or marker which is phenomenal. This adapter works brilliantly and is very strong and sturdy. I cannot recommend it highly enough.

I totally love these holders . They have worked since I got them and they continue to work every time I use them. I found out about them from another crafter and I will definitely be recommending them to others. Thank You very much .

Universal Pen Adapter

Oh my goodness! Just received mine today, and I am impressed!! I had to try it out with all of my different pens and it worked beautifully. No more taping pens and trying to get them to stay in place. Definitely buying another one of these for my home in Florida. And not only that, I received this in record time! LOVE IT!

Scan n Cut universal pen adapter

This is brilliant and works with all kinds of pens. Just follow instructions and get perfect results every time.

Excellent Product

Lesley Dickson on 30th Nov 2021

This pen adapter holds a wide variety of pens firmly allowing the Scan n Cut to write and draw without any skipping or missing lines. It is easy to load the pens into the holder using the clip to gauge how far down they need to be positioned. This holder is much better than the one made by the manufacturer of the Scan n Cut.. Would thoroughly recommend it.
