Another lost stylus


i-mate K-JAM Stylus (3-Pack)i-mate K-JAM Stylus (3-Pack)Today I lost *another* stylus from my i-mate K-JAM.

That's the 6th one I have lost.

I even wrapped sticky tape around my latest stylus to make it fatter and it
still dropped out.

Is it a design flaw?

 or am I just a bad enduser??

grrrr - off to
expansys to buy another pack

  1. Hi Frank,

    I haven’t lost one yet.  Mine seems very firmly stuck in till I need it, and I actually need to scrape at it pretty vigourously to get it out.

  2. Lost my first one the otherday, the JasJar seems to have a flaw that makes them come out really easily.

    Best thing i did was stick a tonne of bluetack down there, its firmly in there (read: little too hard to remove). The bluetack is basically along the sides, and it makes a better solution than sticky tape as it grips on its own aswell.

    Hi Frank!

    A solution which has proven useful is to sticky tape a bit of fishing line to the end. It makes it harder to fall out.

  4. You could try sticking them in there with Super glue 🙂

    I’ve lost two from my O2 XDA IIs thanks to having a lack of sticky-tape on the sides, combined with using the belt-clip. Now, I keep it in my pocket, but I still managed to lose it on Monday. Yesterday I got it back, thanks to Mariel at work, who found it. This one I didn’t want to lose, as it is also a pen. 🙂

    In case you’re not doing it already, use magic tape, and put it on an angle. That way, the thickness increases and decreases slowly as you go up the stylus, and the magic tape is less slippery than normal sticky tape. By putting it on at an angle, you can go a bit thicker than otherwise, so it can be more effective.
