    Ok, I recent got my SP3, but haven't put the pen loop on yet. I'm still debating where the best spot is for all around usage (keyboard flipped back, in use, etc.). I'm currently just clipping it in the keyboard crease, but when I flip the keyboard around I have to flip the pen to the other side.

    So... where have you found that works the best? Pic's would be nice.

    Somewhere... I don't use it. It seemed a bit cumbersome to me.

    I don't use the pen loop so didn't attach it. Still got it around here somewhere in case I ever decide to start using it.

    In the box. Lol. I think it looks tacky. I just put the pen in my sleeve pocket.

    well, that is strange. double checked the box - no pen loop. based in uk if that makes a difference.

    It came in the box as a small rectangle in a clear envelope.

    I put it on the Surface itself so that I'd have the pen even when I remove the keyboard (since the pen is my "accurate" pointer when I don't have the touch pad).


    To do this, you need to cut the adhesive part so that it's not so long. Don't worry -- although there's less overall adhesive, you're sticking it to the smooth metal back of the Surface rather than to the fuzzy back of the keyboard. Place it as high as you can before it will interfere with the operation of the hinge.

    Damn, I didn't think of putting it on the display. I'll have to think about that a bit more.

    I'm using one of these loops:

    I stuck it at the top of the tablet. In this picture you can see both the front and back views:

    And in this one you see the back, larger. As you can see, you need to make sure to not cover up the camera, mic, or flash openings.

    I gave this a try and I was surprised I actually like it. I went to the Microsoft Store on Wed to get a glass screen protector and showed the store rep how I attached the pen loop. She thought it was an awesome idea!

    I finally decided that this was the best location for me. It's been great there. I doesn't get in the way, I can always see it so the pen doesn't get left behind when I'm out and about.
