    Hold the barrel of the pen tightly, and twist counterclockwise, as if you are closing the pen. Keep twisting! Sometimes it helps to wrap a rubber band around the tip to get a good grip. Find the ink cartridge holder. It's usually white or black. To unscrew, twist it counterclockwise. Remove the old ink cartridge from the screw cap (it's usually a snug fit, so you might try that rubber band again). Use the same screw cap, and insert the new cartridge into it, pressing the cap on tightly. Now screw the new refill in, and replace the barrel.

    That's it! You're ready to sign your autograph again.
