Surge disassembly help. tool tock spring
« on: Today at 04:22:32 AM »
I have a 2013 gen 1 surge that has a problem with the tool lock spring on the bit holder/can opener/pocket clip side. The spring is not pushing against the lock hardly at all.
So the tools and the clip do not lock in place. The spring doesn't appear broken, just not very bent so my question is, how do i drive the pivot pin out so I can get the lock out of the way
enough to give the spring a little helping bend?

I know I could send it in but I don't want to take the chance of getting a gen 2 surge since I already have one of those. Plus this seems like a trivial fix if i can get the pin out.
I've tried driving it out with the eyeglass screwdriver from my charge and it will not budge so I know i am doing something wrong

Thanks in advance for any replies!

pic, gen 1 top vs gen 2, much more ben on gen 2 and positive lockup

Might be some trial and error to get it bent back enough to lock again as I have never did this :think: Even if you get it bent some it may not help or it.may help quite a bit :shrug:

Sorry I couldn't be more help :oops:

If I am reading correctly, the pin that u are referring to is not a pin. It's a whole piece together with the locking tab. U will need to unscrew that end, dig out that locking tab to be able to access and bend the spring back. Be careful when bending though cos that may break..

Where are you based? Send it in for repair under warranty, but if you have a sentiment attachment to it, remember to let them know, else they might send you a brand new one.  :tu:
