    Anyone know what this little metal thing and plastic nails is for?

    The plastics are replacements for the S Pen tip. Not sure the proper terminology.

    Ah and I assume the metal thing is to get it out of the pen

    I saw a video where the metal thingie was used to remove a SIM which was impossible to pull out otherwise. Apparently, the slot doesn't have a customary spring.

    It doesn't have the customary spring but it is possible to remove without tools, though a bit tricky the first time . I was able to do it a few times myself.

    It's called a "nib."

    That's weird, I have the Galaxy Note Pro 905 that still comes with the metal clip and it does have the customary spring, therefore don't need it if that's what its for... maybe it serves another use??

    No problem. It's a Thingummy with several spare Wotsits.

    I used it a few days ago. It's well designed. Don't worry about clamping down hard on the current nib and pushing in a new one if you ever need to.

    That tool is used to replace the nibs on the S Pen. Not for SIM replacement (though if it works for you, great, I guess)

    Holy Crap I haven't heard that word since early grade school where they taught us to write with fountain pens . You would replace the "Nibs"

    OMG I'm such an *****. I posted a pic of these points on my FB page and no one knew what they were for. Now it makes sense. I don't plan to use the pen much at all and if I did, I don't think I'd need 5 replacements. haha
