I wrote that the screws holding the clip on my T4 can interfere when clipping the tool onto thick material, e.g., my jeans pocket.  The pocket clip furnished with my T4 knife multitool is different than the pocket clips for the P2 and P4 pliers multitools.  The P2 and P4 clips have an extra bend and more space between the clip and the screw heads.

I swapped the pocket clips.  The clip with he bend and more clearance fits on my jeans pocket better than the original.

Both style clips are shown below.  The original T4 clip is shown on top.

Thanks for pointing that out!

This fix might help anyone wanting to fix the T4 clip.

Also, on top of rounding and polishing the screws, file a ramp on the tip of the clip mount-tongue to make it have zero catching when using in pocket.  :)

The only con that I found on the T4 is the lack of a can opener!

Enjoy!

Leatherman used a new dating system for the T2 and T4. It is a small circle with the year number in the center with an arrow between the two year numbers pointing at the month.

Pics:

T4: Each plastic cover has its' own date circle.

Engraved scale side "A". Date = 5-19.

(Image removed from quote.)

Plain scale clip side  "B". Date = 4-19.

(Image removed from quote.)

T2: There is only one plastic cover on the T2. It has the date circle in a very hard to read place. But, a little patience will help read it.
I couldn't picture it well enough to see in the photo, but it is 4-19.

I knew I remembered seeing something about datecodes on some of the Free series stuff :ahhh just now found it though and have no idea what thread we were talking about it :facepalm: :oops: :rofl:
