Help...Who uses the Leatherman premium sheath with a snap closure???

Mine is making a ring on my BO surge, from the inside of the snap. Looks like the copper is rubbing onto the tool. Ugh :rant:

Maybe affix some type of material on the inner part where the snap and tool meet?  A thin piece of leather or felt?

 :iagree:

I've had the same problem with the leather sheaths that came with the Charge TTi and AL, especially on the black alu scales on the AL.

A piece of good quality duck tape, cut in an oval shape and problem solved.

And it's been sitting in its place perfectly for almost 5 years by now  :tu:.

Thx. I'll try that. I thought it would come loose, or the adhesive would get all over the tool. I was going to send it back but I think I'll try this. I have some Gorilla package tape that's really strong. Maybe that will work.

 :tu: Gorilla tape is as good if not better than duct.  Very thick which is what I like.

This happens with all Leatherman sheaths that have a snap. I have used leather in the past but might give tape a try.

I was surprised the marks rubbed right off. I put electrical tape in there for now because I was at work and we had some there.

Good news.  Glad the marks came off.  Good thing about tape is you can apply new piece as needed.
