Loose cap is a pretty common issue on Montblanc Noblesse, as for many other pens with a plastic snap inner cap. Plastic inner caps usually have a shorter life than the ones with metal mechanism, as they become loose over years of use by the friction of capping and uncapping. Fixing this issue can be not so easy. A fast search in the web gave back a range of proposed solutions: a single layer of electrical tape around the bottom of the inner cap, as it could pull back the inner cap in shape; a layer of Teflon tape on the clutch ring on the section (with an high risk of inner cap cracking); a
I dropped by Yard-o-Led Viceroy Grand and ever since the cap doesn't close as well or as securely as it did, however, I can't find any physical difference in the pen. There are not bumps or dents that I've seen. When I first got it the cap closed with a very satisfying click and was surprisingly secure. Since the fall it stay put fine enough but certainly not as well as before. What should I do? Would Yard-o-led be able to help? Would they charge for a repair? I'm bewildered by what went wrong!
Hey! I was tinkering today with a couple of 15's to figure out what the issue is with the loose cap they seem to be known for. As I was screwing the thing, I noticed that if I didn't screw the section all the way into the barrel the cap would snap nicely. This is a pen for which I tried the hot water trick (filling the cap 2 or 3 times with boiling water and leaving for 30 seconds to nudge the inner cap's plastic back into shape). While that helped quite a bit, it was still too loose to trust that if I clip the pen it won't fall off. So I took a piece of 22 ga silver wire (22 Gauge, 1/
Hi all, I have a Jinhao X450 that was dropped (by me) a while back. Now the cap is so loose it's not really usable. I'm holding it on the pen with electrical tape, but that's not always going to be practical (nor is it the most aesthetically pleasing thing ever). Is there a way to get the cap back to its usual tight-fitting self? It doesn't need to be quite as tough to get on and off as it was, but I would like it to stay on reliably. Thanks, Miche
