I have a 1,5 year old Diplomat A2, and recently discovered that the locking pin of the clip is not pushed all the way through. See attache picture.

I did not notice before now, but I think it's always been this way.




Has anyone else seen this problem? Anything I can do to fix myself? It's cumbersome to send back to retail/service since I purcased the pen abroad.

Any tips what I should do?


Best regards,

Harald Antonsen

I just checked mine, an Excellence Skyline and my pin is like that as well. 


That is the way it should be, me thinks. Never had a problem with it.

I just got my new A2 today and the pin is perfectly centered... I’ll have to keep an eye on it.
