Useful tip on chalk holders

I actually designed a solution for that. Fits Taom and Predator. Has thick and thin spacers and a holder that has a hole [with a "plunger"] to get the whole contraption apart. Adjustable 3 magnet system to get the pull force just right. And caps for it all.

chalk holder also has a built in ball marker for use in a pinch.
With that much work into it, you have to have commercialized it.

C'mon, tell us how to get one!

Where, because all I've seen is the little skinny black ones that fall out of your pocket... 🤕


Dozens of objects attached to round chalk holders.

When I’m at the hall and I have my own personal chalk, rather than mess up my pants pocket I’ll use the holder where the chalk hangs outside my pockets. At home the chalk is on the rail.

But Dan, as experienced as I am sure you are, I know you already knew that.
ALL my cargo shorts are blue in the right front pocket. So there...

I find the broad rubber bands help when wrapped around my V10. Slows the roll when one gets dropped or falls off the rail. Bright color helps too

As a user of Taom chalk I love everything about it except that when I inevitably knock it to the floor at some point in the night there is a high likelihood it's going to roll away from me. This would solve that, I love the octagonal design for the round chalk for this reason. Are these available somewhere? I don't even want the magnet part, just the holder part to keep my chalk from rolling away from me if I knock it off the table. Taom is wonderful chalk...but round is stupid shape for chalk.

I've got 'em on Etsy. The pocket disc with integrate ball marker is actually selling more than the pocket clip. That one has 4 magnets total for a SUPER strong pull. 1 in the clip, 3 in the holder [but you can reduce the number of magnets if it's too strong]

I got mine in the mail today from overthought3d. Feels very solid, good little system.

If you are a chalk “painter” and not a “borer”, you may find this useful, in particular for chalk like Taom, which might be shorter than a typical Masters cube.

As you can see, the Taom chalk is lower than the surface of the holder. Makes it hard to “paint” the edges of the tip.

Put a few quarters under the chalk to bring it up level with the holder.

And yes, my square holder adequately holds my V10 round chalk.

I realize that in the grand scheme of pool this hack is pretty benign, but maybe someone will find it useful.

I have used quarters, but what I found worked better for me is carefully cutting the chalk holder down approximately halfway so it is not so tall.
