I have a Lamy Studio whose cap is having some issues. I've found plenty here about cap issues with the Studio, but they refer to the ring above the nib coming off and getting wedged inside the cap. That isn't the case here unfortunately.

It seems the rubbery piece inside the cap came out of place. Because of this the cap will not stay posted very well and can slide right off the pen. I generally carry it in a 3-pen case with a top that folds down, so the cap coming off isn't usually an issue, it the click isn't as satisfying and it is a bit annoying, as when I remove the cap, the black rubber piece remains on the pen and I have to pull it off and slide it back in the cap to post it.

Does anybody know how it was secured in the first place, or have ideas on sticking it back in there, or would it be best/possible to get a replacement from Lamy? I didn't want to just pour some glue in there without seeking some info from those more experienced. See the images for clarity.

Since Lamy has a lifetime guarantee in the US I would say send it into to them, or if nothing more contact them to see what they recommend. They would most certainly replace the cap, for the cost of return postage.

If this is you, and the ink is in fine condition otherwise, don't dump it down the sink, or throw it into the trash, send it to me (payment can be negotiated), and I will provide it a nice safe home with love, and a decent meal of paper!

I had exactly this same thing happen to mine. I bought it yesterday and got it home last night, inked it up, capped it, then uncapped it, and voila! The inner cap came out with the pen. I couldn't get it to stay inside the pen. I talked to Lamy today and the lady said to send it to them. She referred me to this page:

Thanks for the feedback, both of you. I didn't know about the guarantee somehow. I'll check that out. Probably better than trying to diy it.
