Westcott Premium Hot Glue Pen (16761) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 82.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent tool for crafting and repairs This product is an excellent tool for crafters. It gives you control over where you want to put the hot glue. The more I use it, the more I find it useful for so many different projects. I like the thin line of glue...although, it would be a great improvement to be able to have wider lines of glue at times. This tool is a great improvement over the hot glue guns I have used previously. The only thing that could make it better is to make it cordless, and have an adjustable tip to be able to use on a wider range of projects and repairs. I really, really like this tool!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great glue pen! I often struggle with the awkwardness of glue guns, so I was excited to try this pen! I was looking for something more precise than a normal glue gun. The pen like grip makes it easy to hold, and the color changing tip is a great feature to notify you when it's ready to use. I am still getting used to the loading mechanism, and I wish it was full size sticks instead of minis. I hate having to reload so often. Overall a great product!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from big for small hands The good: The glue pen performed flawless, takes time to warm up but once it does you're good to glue. Good for small projects but if you need long glue lines this is not what you want to use.The bad: My hands are small and had problems with managing the pen, it felt very awkward. Not Auto feed, After each squeeze you have to reset the feed lever. If it's a big project this would get tiresome pretty fast

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A Little Glue Gun I have been using this glue gun for the past several weeks. It heats up very quickly and is relatively easy to use. I love the idea of it being so small. However, I felt like I was constantly having to feed glue into the gun and it was a bit awkward to use. I feel more comfortable with the traditional glue guns, but I will continue to work with this one... and who knows... I might change my mind.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Godsend! So I may not be like most people. Me and a hot glue gun do not go well together. I always manage a sloppy glue and have it on something it's not supposed to or burning myself with it. This product arrived just in time. My little one likes to rearrange the ornaments on the tree. She has a collection of broken ones that needed to be fixed. We used this product to glue the little backs onto the nutcrackers. Great tool very easy to use and the best part precise. I didn't have glue everywhere. You cannot even see that the back are glued on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from thin lines I am someone who has crafted for about 60 years, Never have I had occasion to use a glue pen.So, I had a friend help me with this. She has used many glue pens in the past. She was amazed at the thin line that emerged from the pen. I am finding that I will use it now that I have it. It will come in very useful as I am mainly a card maker. I wasn't sure about the side handles so I shall have to read the instructions more carefully but I would definitely recommend this glue gun. To quote my friend-"It's gorgeous".

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use! This glue pen is so easy to use. It's small, easy to handle and easy to store. The glue flows smoothly and bonds well. Inserting the glue is simple as you slide it in the top then control it on the side as you are gluing away! I will be using this glue pen for all my projects!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect size !! I love this pen size glue gun. Ideal for projects that only need a small dab of glue. My son is getting married at the end of July....I used the glue pen to glue fabric to carboard and pictures to burlap.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Glue Gun My first use was for christmas decorations. Had to glue some cotton on to my wooden santa. Directions were terrible. no mention direction on how to hold it, no direction on how to stop glue from coming out tip, no mention gun had glue stick in it already or how to release stick. once figured out the gun worked very well. the pen style was easy to control and how much to distribute to area. glue heated up fast. just a bit awkward to hold gun and press trigger.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great glue gun with extra features! The hand grip on this pen glue gun fit my hands perfectly and made it very easy to manipulate the glue. I was able to write words with the glue. The red tip feature (tip turns red when the glue gun has heated up) really is wonderful. Just keep in mind that due to the smaller "stream" of glue coming out that the glue cools down faster. I can see this being handy for working on crafts that require gluing in narrow openings. Great tool for maker spaces.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great control! Comes with written instructions, but I watched a short video tutorial to properly insert the mini-glue stick. It takes a little getting used to. I recommend practicing a few shots to get used to the trigger flow. It stays hot with no glue drips so there's no waste. Love the tip indicator, it turns red when it's hot & ready to use. Turns blue when it's cool and ones it cools, you can easily remove glue strings from the silicone tip.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Retraction to previous review, Love It! Originally purchased the short handle version, it was all kinds of bad. Received the new version from Westcott. In appearance it is almost identical to the previous version. However, I am happy to say appearance is where the similarities stop. The new version came with 1 glue stick already loaded and another in the package. Making it ready to use, eliminating the needing to purchase additional glue sticks before use. Once the unit is heated the handle is super easy to pull back. When you press the trigger the handle glides gently and safely forward. Love It! This is just what I was expecting. I can't wait to use it with my scouts. With the cool touch tip and easy glide trigger even my special needs son (who loves to craft) will be able to use this pen.I wont throw my old faithful first Westcott glue gun away. But, I will give it a much needed break.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Idea This product is a great is so much easier to put the hot glue exactly where you want it than with the old "gun style" hot glue guns. The only issue I had was that the part that pushes the glue down kept hitting my big hands when I was using it. Other than that, it is a great product and I love the fact that you can visibly see (the tip turns red) when it is hot enough to use.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It does what it is supposed to do... I think. I am not a crafter -- I have limited use for a glue pen. It seemed like a cool device to have on hand so I gave this one a try. I used it to place a seal over the flap of an envelope and it worked out great. I won't use it every day, but it is there if I need it, and it doesn't take up much space; the pen and a bunch of extra glue sticks fit nicely into a one quart plastic zip bag.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for detailed craft work As a crafter, I feel this is a good addition to the tool box for the finer, detailed glue work. Although a bit confusing to get it loaded the first time, it's easy to use once you get the hang of it. That's another thing, it does take some time to get used to the 'pencil' form, but it's comfortable to use and good design. The pen heats up fast and I like the 'red' tip when hot so I know when it's ready to use, or cooled down enough to put away. There was some glue dripping while still hot and not in use, but I'm not sure if that's due to the pen or the glue stick quality - I'm still using up the mini sticks I purchased for my glue gun. I will still use my standard glue gun for large projects, but this pen is great for adding the smaller delicate pieces, like buttons, beads, ribbon, etc ... I guess that's where the glue gun vs glue pen distinction comes in, and why you need specific tools for specific needs!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome!! Loved how lightweight it was; didn't have to struggle to hold onto it, which also made it easy to maneuver around. Very easy to load in more glue sticks. Always STOPPED when I wanted it to. My girlfriend and I spent a couple hours doing Christmas 'things'. She borrowed it 2 weeks ago and I haven't seen it since!! Obviously she loves it too!! Best glue gun I/we have ever used!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Westcott Hot Glue Pen I like how quickly the glue pen heats up and by the tip turning from blue to red let's you know when it's cool or hot. I like how the flow of the glue from the glue pen. The glue pen needs a stand so it doesn't lay on it's side. It's not convenient each time to move the lever on the sides when more glue is needed, however, I do like how it keeps the flow consistent.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My favorite hot glue gun I honestly really like this hot glue gun, it has many really great features such as the tip turning red when it's hot. I think that's a great safety feature that can prevent many unnecessary burns. It's also quite ergonomic and all around easy to use, my review would be 5 starts but I'm my experience the nozzle still lets glue or even after you release it

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Home Crafter Perfect Hot Glue Pen Great for everyday crafting. This tool fills the need to precisely place hot glue in a small areas or normal every day projects with a comfortable grip! Finally a comfortable grip that doesn't make you hands cry after using a bit. I love the easy press trigger as well. It's like a happy dance, as finally a hot glue gun that truly works for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product I used this product at school and loved it. It is easy to load the glue sticks. The pen style grip is also a great feature for ease of use. I also like that the nozzle changes color to indicate when it is ready to use. I use a glue gun several times a year and this is a great addition to my classroom. I would recommend it to other teachers.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great pen! I purchased the previous model of the glue pen and it didn't work. I review it Westcott and they immediately got hold of me thru email and apologies for it, and offered to send a newer better model for free. A week after I got my new glue pen and oh boy! I love this product! I'm so excited to start my crafting and use this pen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Easy To Use! The Westcott Premium Hot Glue Pen is so easy to use and is so easy store. The pen heats up quickly and makes less mess than a traditional glue gun. The compact size means it doesn't take up a ton of storage space. The top mounted finger trigger makes it easy to apply the glue and the non-stick tip makes clean up a breeze.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great tool for intricate projects! I've been using hot glue guns for projects for years, and wondered how could you improve on a hot glue gun? This glue pen is perfect for projects that require less glue or have intricate parts. The fine tip is so much better for getting just the right amount, and just where you need it without a mess or wasted glue!
Date published: 2017-12-15
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Handy and Travel Friendly but Too Small This item arrived well packaged but does not have a good way to store the extra glue sticks. I understand that it's travel size and super convenient but not when all of the pieces are not together. It heated up well and was very straightforward to use otherwise. Good when you need something glue in a pinch!
Date published: 2017-12-14
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent controlled glue application I got this pen to try for an application which needed quick joining but with minimal overrun of the glue to allow maximum opening elements in the part. It worked great and I had the checkerboard pattern I needed. And it worked as well as a glue gun in another element of the same project. Superb flexibility!
Date published: 2017-07-10
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the size! I love the size of this glue gun. It's so compact and easy to maneuver. The directions were a little confusing and I'm not sure how that Release button at the top of the pen works, but I used it like any other glue gun. It also has that temperature changing tip, so you know when the tip is hot. Love it!
Date published: 2017-12-27
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very different This Westcott hot glue pen looks very different then most hot glue guns on the market. It is easy to hold and use. I especially like the nozzle changing colors to let you know whether it's hot or not. This hot glue pen will definitely be replacing my old hot glue gun.
Date published: 2017-12-05
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Control! The hot glue pen is a great iteration of the glue gun! More control and a very fine line of glue. Also, the tip turns from black to red when it’s hot enough to start gluing. It’s ergonomically correct, light weight and cool to the touch. Perfect for fine detail gluing!
Date published: 2017-12-07
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use With two young children I need my tools to be fast and efficient, and I was pleasantly surprised. I also loved the feature of the red tip when hot! I used this to fix a pair of my sons shoes today and they tried almost instantly. So excited for my new glue pen!

The charging slider slams down on my hand when I depress the button to activate glue flow. It does it so fast that it hits my hand and hurts. It is normal for this to happen?

Asked by: Mama Nevers
I’m having the exact same issue. I’d like to know what to do about it.
