    Activboard Pen falling apart

    Just been brought an Activboard Pen with the front part loose (bit where the nib goes). Not knowing much about these (not been in this school long and prev used Smartboard)

    Does anyone know if its safe to glue (non superglu) back in place? or should it come off to replace a battery etc.

    Cheers

    I think the nibs are removable so they can be replaced?

    The nibs are removable so that they can be replaced. The rest of the pen should be in one piece permanently.

    The nibs are replaceable.

    if its the actual bit at that has the button on it then im not sure as usually in my experience the pen part does not break its the nibs that do or get lost.

    Thanks guys (n gals) - sorry for posting in the wrong place for starters -

    Should have described the loose bit for starters - it's the light grey bit that is at the end of the pen that the nib goes into (basically abit of outer casing) its sort of flapping in the wind - but is stopped from falling off the pen totally by the button.

    Anyhew - I'll blob some non superglue on the orange ribs and see if it holds it. - didnt want to use superglue as thats too thin and could run into (or under) the button and/or glued the nib solid.
