My first Leatherman and my latest Leatherman...
on: July 18, 2016, 08:44:28 PM
Got this PST back in 1996, my first Leatherman.  I didn't wear belts back then and needed a good way to carry my PST in my pocket, so the pocket clip was TIG welded on...



I see now what I could have done differently, but it is what it is now...


Just the other day this PST dated 2004 showed up in my collection. Again, I wanted a pocket clip. All I had handy was a spare Skeletool clip.  So...





So now my first and my latest...

Nice job on the clips  :cheers:

Is there anything keeping the skele clip from rotating ?

Short answer is No.  I had to find a sweet spot between tight enough the clip won't easily move and loose enough the handles will still open nicely.

Seems ok so far but I can't carry it until August...

I wonder if a small piece of double sided tape would keep it from moving :think: Or some friction tape ???

It really needs pressure to move it. It's not like it just slips around easily.
