    Works!

    I bought this item online earlier this year, so I've had several months experience with it. It does exactly what I wanted it to do: keep the cap safe. The cap and the cover can easily flip off the pen, but only when you are fiddling with the top of pencil in the way you would with a wood pencil eraser or a pen cap. But if you don't fiddle, no problem. It has held up very well and there does not seem to be any wear or tear on the connecting piece between the cap cover and the part that encircles the pencil. I was really happy to find that this piece of equipment existed and will not go without it for even a minute. It gets a four because the soft material feels a little slick and the piece that fits around the pencil isn't really tight and slides up and down the pencil body when handling the pencil near the top end. Not a deal breaker, but a little annoying.

    Never Loose the Cap Again!

    I recently punched and iPad Pro, along with the essential accoreis in order to take advantage of the "pro" aspect of the product. Not even within 48 hours of owning the product, I temporarily lost the cap to my Apple Pencil. While walking around my local Best Buy, I ran into this product and instantly purchased it. The cap of my Apple Pencil fits perfectly with this product and love that it attaches directly to the Apple Pencil, so it's always close by! I also love the fact that it also comes with a "keeper" for the lightning adapter used for charging the Apple Pencil. Now I know I will (hopefully) never loose these tiny parts of my Apple Pencil! Great job, Insignia!

    Great Apple Pencil Cap and Adapter Keeper

    I saw something similar to this online when looking into buying the Apple Pencil. I was surprised when I came across them in the Best Buy store. Simple idea and concept and it works great. There are actually two connectors in the box. One is for the pencil cap and slides on to the Apple Pencil and on the cap. It keeps you from losing the cap, or having it roll away. The other connector that comes in the package is for the female to female lightning connector that comes with the Apple Pencil for charging. It slides over the adapter and on to the charging cord. It keeps it attached to the cord so that you do not lose it. I like the way both of these connectors work and highly recommend them.

    A must have for the pencil

    I now have two apple pencils (one for home, one for at work). I found with my first pencil I needed a holder for the cap so I wouldn't lose it. My first cap holder I like better than this one because the flexible piece that holds the cap to the band around the pencil is too thin and I am worried it will more easily break off making the cap holder useless. On the plus side on this cap is it also comes with a band that holds the charging adaptor. I am rating it a 3 because of the charging adaptor piece holder. Also I recommend it or some type of holder for the cap so they don't roll away to obscurity.

    I like this pen but I don’t care for several things about it! First is the price. I feel that $100.00 is way to much for this pen. Also I don’t care for the set up of it. The tip will need to be replaced eventually, and the end where you have to recharge it is very small and easy to lose. Now for the price of the pen it should of came with a strap and a case for the extra tip. However ( the strap) had to be purchased separately,and there is no case for the extra tip. Other than this the pen does work good. Thank you.

    Needed a way to hang onto the cap

    I needed a way to hang onto the cap for the apple pencil I purchased. I thought this would do the trick. While it does hang onto it when I take the cap off (won't get lost) it's not that easy to get the cap with the wider stylus tip out if I want to use that end. I end up having to squeeze that end out, which makes me worried I might rip/tear either this, or the rubber stylus end. It would have been better had this been a clip going around the outside of the cap, similar to how this stays attached to the pencil.

    Insignia Cap Keeper for Apple Pencil

    Ingenious, I can't believe Apple doesn't include this with their pencil. Stupid design on Apple's behalf, but made bearable thanks to this product by Insignia. Nice bonus is that they also include a second keeper for the other ridiculously stupi charging adapter that you need to charge your pencil with your wall charger. The second keeper connects to the pen charger adapter & your charger cord, so that the pencil charger is always there when you need it.

    When I bought my pencil, all I could think about is losing the cap, so I was walking thru Best Buy and saw this. It really works well and an added bonus is it keeps the pencil from rolling away. (Too bad they didn’t shape the pencil like a good ‘ol #2, but that’s a story for another review). The only reason it didn’t get a 5 from me is I think the price is a little stiff at $9.99. But alas, it keeps me from picking up my pencil off the floor. At a hundo for one of those, I don’t want to break it.

    I love being able to keep the cap attached, to the iPencil, while it’s being charged. I don’t always have somewhere to tuck that tiny cap while charging. I was surprised after a year that I hadn’t lost the cap yet and then while looking for something else at Best Buy I spotted this awesomeness. It doesn’t add any bulk or weight and I don’t feel that it gets in the way at all. Your cap is right there and ready to put back on after charging.

    Keeps pencil cap close

    The cap keeper is a great way to keep the cap handy when charging the pencil and has the added benefit of preventing the pencil from rolling when capped (very useful). The keeper for the adapter does not fit as snugly as I would like, but it also appears to do its job. All-in-all a good purchase!

    Fixes the Biggest Issue with the 1st Gen Pencil

    If you have the 1st Gen Pencil (and why else would you be reading this review?!), then this simple, rubbery cap solves one of the biggest issues - how not to lose the cap when charging...or fidgeting. The keeps the cap firmly attached to the pencil so you won't fund yourself walking around with an exposed lightning port. A must if you have the first gen Pencil.

    Great idea

    The cap keeper is a great idea if you are pulling your iPad w/attached pencil in and out of a bag or briefcase. The magnet works at holding the cap on but catching the edge can sometimes dislodge it. The keeper keeps the cap from being lost. The only draw back is that the rubber ring that holds it on will slide upward and does become loose with use. I'd still recommend and would probably replace when mine is to loose to keep the cap secure.

    I use this when i charge my pen to keep the cap near the pen at all times. I don’t usually take the cap off any other time than to charge it, so it come in handy when i do because its so small and could be easily lost. This is super nice because i just attach it to the pen when i put it on the charger and I know that it will still be there when i come back.

    Sometimes the simplest ideas offer the greatest convenience and piece of mind: enter the Insignia Apple pencil cap holder and tether. Anyone who owns the Apple pencil should purchase this holder and tether for their Apple pencil cap which is just waiting to be lost the moment you charge your pencil. Get it and gain inexpensive insurance and peace of mind you will never lose your Apple pencil cap.

    This is the best cap saver out there. Apple pencils are notorious for losing the caps, and its unsightly... this cover/protector looks great on the pencil and has saved my cap from being lost countless times. This is a standard purchase for all pencils for our guys who use iPad in the field. They all still have their caps!

    At $10 for a little piece of plastic my husband thought I was crazy. Why apple does include this with their $100 pencil I don't know. It securely holds that little cap that has a tendency to roll off and doesn't have a replacement. It's a needed piece of equipment that should be included with the pencil, but thankfully can be purchased separately until Apple wakes up.

    When my cap fell off while carrying the iPad with the Apple Pencil clipped to it (UAG cover), I found the cap in the grass and then went out and got this cap keeper. I still have that original cap coming up on a year now. The kit includes another keeper that holds the lightning adapter for the pencil to the end of your lightning cord.

    • My Best Buy® Elite MemberElite Member

    First off, this doesn't keep you from loosing the iPencil cap. Second, I was sold this one when I was inquiring about a replacement for my iPencil cap. This is not a replacement cap for iPencils. It's a retainer. I would have gladly paid $10.00 for just the cap. Not happy when I got home to open the item only to find out that it was the retainer. Best Buy doesn't sell the iPencil Cap. Side Note: Niether does Apple.

    Great product works as expected, I don't have to worry about losing the cap on my Apple pencil now. Even though it is magnetic it still is very easy to come off especially when I was taking it out of the pencil holder in the apple leather case for the iPad. It doesn't fit in the pencil holder as well as it had before. But overall it works great.

    Slides Off Pencil

    The concept is good, unfortunately I often find the cap holder has completely slidden off the pencil. The silicone is not tight enough to stay on the pencil under the same circumstances that caused me to purchase this in the first place. It stays on the cap but not on the pencil. Gonna try another brand and see if that will work. Don’t waste your money on this one.
