Loose multi tool fuctions? Answered

I got a multi tool for my b-day but the blades are very loose. How do I make them Tighter? there is no bolt just a rivet of sorts or pin.


You'll need a hammer and something harder than the steel used for the rivet/pin, like an anvil or other piece of very hard metal such as a piece of railroad track (I was given a 1' section years ago) or the back end of a bench mounted vise (usually flat like an anvil).

Place the multi tool on its side, resting on the rivet/pin. Tap the rivet/pin and test the tightness. Repeat until satisfied.


or you could just deal with it by taking it to a pro (knife shop) or not worry about it at all
