    Customer Reviews/Tips

    I love these compasses. They are so much easier for students to use than a traditional metal/pencil compass. Throughout the year, a few may break, but buying extras of this type is still less expensive than buying a nice, traditional compass for all students.

    *****EAI RESPONSE****
    We're sorry to hear about your experience with our Slide N' Measure Compasses. If pivot points fall out after being dropped, they can be pushed back into place as long as you have both the clear plastic disk and the blue ring. However, this particular compass style does not have any screws or locking mechanisms that can be tightened, so we are curious to hear more about what exactly you have experienced. Please contact our customer service team at 1-800-770-8010 and we will be glad to assist you.

    Worthless for any kind of classroom use. Slightly over tightening the lock causes the screw tightener to irreparably break. Furthermore, falling a short distance from the desk to the floor causes the pivot to pop out rendering the compass useless as well. I bought a pack of 30 and they lasted maybe a couple weeks with classes of pretty well-behaved students.

    Complete waste of money. Very disappointing.
