Features of the Security Pens
 

York 117 High Security Pen

Since 1991, the York 117 High Security Pen has been the pen of choice for NYC Department of Corrections. Since then it has been incorporated into many other prisons and secure institutions across the country. It is the only soft, all-plastic writing instrument available today.

  • With 100% flexible plastic construction, it's difficult to be turned into a weapon. (Even the smooth writing roller ball tip is plastic.)
  • It cannot be used as a hidden receptacle.
  • Water-based, non-toxic ink.
  • Rolling ball tip for easy writing.

York 646 Clear Barrel Security Pen

  • It cannot be used to hide contraband.
  • Lightweight and plastic, it breaks away upon impact but is sturdy and comfortable enough as a writing instrument.
  • Made in the USA and assembled by an association of the handicapped.
  • 3-5 year shelf life.
  • Custom Imprinting available on the #646 pen. Please inquire if interested

York 650 Clear Poly-Flex Security Pen

  • Low-price, poly-vinyl flexible pen.
  • Non-toxic ink.
  • Made in the USA and assembled by an association of the handicapped.
  • Difficult to hide contraband.

Since 1991, the NYC Department of Corrections has used the York 117 Security pen as its writing instrument of choice.

"We have had numerous instances before where guys were getting stabbed with (stick) pens. the York 117 High Security Pens were first purchased by order of our Chief of Security who was determined to get rid of the pens we had then. Since we replaced them with York 117 High Security Pens, we have had no stabbings with pens. With other pens, you could take out the inserts but the York 117 High Security Pen does not come apart to be turned into a weapon. The quality is good. It's a good investment."
