Replace the pen nib

Replace the pen nib

Tip: Replace your pen nib when it is approximately 1 mm (1/25 inch) or has a sharp edge.

  1. Grab the old nib and pull it out of the pen.
  2. You can also use the nib removal tool to remove your pen nib. There is a small hole in the pen stand, case, pen end, or pen holder depending on what was included with your device.

  4. Push the nib in slowly and firmly until it stops.

Where to find replacement nibs

The extra nibs are stored in different places for different devices. First, look in the box that your device was packaged in. If you do not see the nibs there, try these places:

  • If your device included a pen case, check there.
  • If your device has a removable compartment cover on the back, slide it open.
  • If your device included a pen stand, unscrew the pen stand.
    • Tip for the Pro Pen 2 stand: To screw the stand back together, line up the dots on the bottom of the stand and the recess. Then, gently guide the bottom of the stand to the right until you feel it click into place.
  • If your device includes a pen holder attachment, check there.
  • If your device has built-in stand legs, the replacement nibs may be located underneath one of the legs.

If you need more nibs, you can purchase them from the Wacom Store.

Where to find the nib replacement tool

For some devices, the nib replacement tool is a metal ring included with your device.

For other devices, you will need to use the nib replacement hole to remove your pen nib. The nib replacement hole can be found in a variety of places depending on your device.

  • On the bottom of your pen stand
  • On the pen storage case
  • On the pen holder attached to your device
  • Underneath one of the built-in stand legs.

Pen stands vary depending on the pen tablet or pen display that you purchased.
