I think I have figured why people are getting PS4s with rivets

While looking into getting a PS4 for a mod, I noticed that several people have been getting them with rivets, not pivots.  All the PS4s with rivets are black PS4s.  I think that Leatherman might be switching to rivets for PS4s and they are starting with the black ones.
So if you want a PS4 with pivots, you better get a red or blue one soon.

Interesting observation - my red one is indeed pivoty, not rivety :)

So you're thinking that the screws were first, and the rivets are the latest version? (Or is it the other way around?) ???

Well all of the pictures I have seen of them have been with torx screws, so that certainly seems logical.  I sure hope that is just on the black ones and not becoming a trend for all of them.

I have just found some concerning evidence.
I was at REI and found 4 BLUE PS4s with rivets, and 2 with torx.
BTW skeletools and freestyles are 25% off at REI.

This could be the start of a bad trend.  If anyone has any inside contacts this would be a good time to get in touch with them.

Are they date stamped? [scuttles of to fetch his PS4 and a torch]........

EDIT: Hmmm - my PS4 is just stamped "10" in each handle. Very useful Leatherman  ::)

Same here, the 6 that I have, 3 each of PS4 and ES4, are all stamped with a 10.

If this is so, how is this a bad trend? The older Squirts were riveted.

The only problem I see is that I may now have to get another 6 with rivets.  :think:

It is bad because it is easier to mod them with torx.

Black. Anyone know any brick and mortar stores/franchises that would have them in store?  Dick's?  Sports Authority? 

I'm in NY if that matters

Rodfather, You can get blue torx ps4s at REI, for 30$.  That is 10$ more expensive than amazon.

Maybe that is it, they are selling the ones with rivets to the retailers who sell them cheaper and the pivots for those who charge full price. Perhaps this is it.

It's a fine tool, just that you cannot mod it so easily.

Hi,

Got the following from Leatherman;

"We originally launched the new Squirt PS4 and ES4 with threaded fasteners, however in July we've permanently switched over to rivets for all colors of the Squirt tools which provides a lower and smoother profile of the tool in the pocket.  There are still a few Squirts floating around in retail that have the fasteners, but as inventories get replenished they will be replaced with the riveted versions.

There are no changes to the Style or Style CS."

More to chase for the collection :>)

Best - Joe

That is interesting information. Guess the fasteners will be more collectable over the long run.

I contacted the eBay seller I got my PS4 from and ordered another assured to be with pivots, to have as a backup

Rivets are stupid  :ahhh
