I did this at Techshop.
The clip of my pocket knife got caught and bent outwards. It was inconvenient and I decide a quick fix was in order.
- 1 Bent up pocket knife
- Wooden shim
- Bench vise
Step 1: Shimmy Shimmy Ya
I used a piece of scrap paneling from the bin in the wood shop. I hit it on the sander for two seconds an voila, I had a shim.
Place the shim at the top bend in the clip. Doing this will help to retain the shape of the clip rather than flattening it out.
Step 2: Squeeze
Place the knife and the shim in the vise. Get it right at the bend and turn up the pressure. It doesn't take much.
Step 3: Fin
Now you have a pocket knife that will remain in your pocket even while doing hand stands.
