The safety stylus is the same as the APH Tuck-away stylus. The point 
unscrews and is turned around to fit into the ball end of the stylus, which 
is typically heavy and metal versus wooden. I like them because of that 
weighted end but the fact that the point is tucked away is good for tossing 
it into a bag or purse. I’ve only had one point get broken off on a regular 
stylus that way but  I have had the points come through material in bags.
