Ouch - spring arm broken... good luck getting it replaced, should not normally be a problem.

My sister found the bit, it sailed off and I heard it hit the wall next to a rolling cart in the kitchen. I had given up finding but she came through!

Not that they need it to see it was broken but maybe they can learn something from how it came apart.

Trust me, LM already know, unfortunately it is quite a common fault on the small Squirt scissors, and seems to happen even if they are hardly used.

I bought it used and use the scissors regularly. Oh well, I thought it might be of interest, metallurgically speaking. I just received a Style PS for myself as we will be flying soon but carrying that today. Nice little tool and so light weight.

Ok, I give up.

Please tell me where the date code is located?

My old eyes need a hint where to start looking.

Thanks

BTW the squirt is used as much or more than my other tools. At least in my case.

Plier end inside, only two numbers. Mine has 13, I think for the year only

I really like these newer squirts. I like em better than a swiss and they've even replaced my micra.
I don't need a real heavy duty tool, so these work really well for me, very light and easy to carry. The toolset works well for me as well.

I snagged an ES4 from Amazon... I had no idea how small this thing actually is. The photos make it look like a full-sized tool. So I was very skeptical... and then I opened it up. Wow, it's actually quite a useful size when all folded out. Surprisingly so. And it works really well on all gauges of wire I've tried. It's going in my motorcycle tool bag permanently, and I'm going to have to buy another one for my workbench.

My PS4 stays in my pocket all the time, my ES4 at the bench.
Yeah, just a fantastic little tool, I still am amazed they've replaced my micra. I do like the tools opening up on the outside vs the internal micra, very handy.

^ You can modify the Micra so that the tools open from the outside, preserving 90% of the stock tools yet cutting the bulk in half:

Been looking at the es for quite a while now. I am a service tech, and would like a small multitool that has a real wire stripper that can disappear into my pocket until i need it as a backup or to save a trip back to the truck. I have had concerns about how well it actually functions with the small size. Anyone actually give this tool some real use? Thanks in advance for all input.

Had the Squirt PS 4 on my key ring for 3 months, didn't like it. Never used the pliers, the outside tools got full of grime and hard to open, and for me the tools are generally too small to be practical. So I got a Micra which is much better for the keyring role for me. The Squirt I thought would be good because it had the manly pliers instead of scissors but it didn't work out. It lives in the desk drawer now where it won't get much use unfortunately, so I am member of the owners club but this multitool gets a fail from me in what I intended to use it for.  :cheers:

It is interesting how the same tool can get a totally different rating from two people just because their usage/needs are very different.  The PS4 didn't work out for you, and yet I've been EDCing a P4 as my sole EDC MT for years now, and have been very happy with it (and I have many, many other MTs I could EDC if I wanted to).  I'm not saying either of us is wrong, it is just how our requirements are so different. ETTO, YMMV and all that  :tu:

Its very interesting the perspectives.  I quite like my P4 and PS4 very much.  The scissors on my PS4 have been flawless so far.  The tool set is wonderful.  I keep mine in my coin/watch pocket ready when needed.  I have a couple back ups just in case something go wrong with it.  I don't want to be without this tool.

Different strokes for different folks, really comes down to needs. When I got it I thought it was cool and would be really useful but it didn't workout as a keyring tool for me and gave me an excuse to buy a Micra which I love.

Disappointed with the one I just picked up PS4. I had sold my blue early version many years ago, had a glossier finish, I wanted the E version but could never find it on sale...any way I got one today 25% off, but the philips is very tight/difficult to extract and does not snap back into handle, kinda have to shove it in, the scissors open nicely but again wont snap closed into handle either.

I think the rivet on the philips is too tight and is squeezing scales too much causing these issues. It was also bone dry, oiling it hasn't helped, might have to exchange it if it doesn't improve with some fidgeting, I don't recall if my previous version had these issues, but this one is pretty bad.

Can anyone tell me if this is close to normal operation? I don't want to drive back to the store, exchange it and find the same issue and have to go back again  :rofl: Honestly I've been getting a lot of duds/lemons lately and starting to get soured on new purchases unless it's a Vic which are always good...
