Pen Model:Parker Mandarin Yellow Duofold Limited Edition

The clip seems very tight when I want to disassemble it (May be they use special glue?). So is there any safe way if I want to disassemble Clip from Parker Centennial Duofold Cap?

The way to disassemble is very different from vintage Parker Duofold series.

Why would you want to remove the clip?
It can be removed but if done inappropriate it can be damaged.

The clip has some deep scratch so I want to replace it.

It is true that the clip is conntect with screw thread cap top and some glue.

I successfully remove it by using hot water.(7min, 45°C)

Hi,

Ah, I see. Good to read that you want to replace the damaged clip.
Yes, the black threathed cap top is holding it in place. I never use glue or other stuff to reassemble it again.
Some glues can damage the plastic.

Good luck!
