    Staedtler Lead Holder Tops

    I use the Staedtler lead holders, but I don't like how I can't tell which lead type is inside which lead holder. I heard Staedtler sell replacement tops, but can't find them.

    Can someone point me to where they are sold?

    A less expensive solution if you already have multiple lead holders, or don't switch it out that often; a little piece of masking tape with the hardness written on it.

    Each twelve-pack of Staedtler leads comes with a replacement top, a different color for each hardness.

    Just so I know I am ordering the right thing... the 12pk of Staedtler lumograph leads are what I want (Priced around $10-15).
