    I can't count the number of times I've caught the clip of my pocket knife on a wall, door, the paint job of my car, etc., leaving unsightly and sometimes expensive damage.

    I swear there has to be a way to prevent this from happening. Maybe a plastic coated metal replacement clip?

    Mine seems to be the bottom of my car steering wheel when I get in and out. And I've come close to nailing the end post on my stairrail.

    Mine just wears the edge of my pockets. I don't recall damaging anything other then that.

    This happens to me too. I also have scratched my burb once. Ouch! :eek:

    I have found a solution that works, at least for a while. Heat shrink tubing. The stuff that you use to seal some electrical connections. Get the quality shrink tubes (from a good electronics shop). I just take off the clip and insert it into the tube. I leave the tube a bit long and then trim with a sharp knife after using the heat gun. This works for a few months, sometimes longer. Sure does save the pockets on my pants and also hold better in the pocket without getting stuck.

    Just an idea.
     

  8. Good plan! I have scratched three of my wife's cars over the years, never managed to get one of mine though. :bluelaugh:

    Wow, I've never damaged anything with my knife clip. Maybe it's time to stop running into stuff Joey!

    I used to do this all the time, but haven't in quite a while. I'm probably due...

    If you are right handed, carry on the left side.

    Goes the same for watches.
