    So I opened the leatherman ps4 scissors today and the spring bar was gone, broken off. I have not used them in a week or two and they were fine before.

    I used it on a keychain, still no idea why it broke while being closed.

    I did not try any hard use on these. Just cutting hair, thread coming lose and maybe some occasional fingernail. I actually spared this tool a lot, having used the knifeblade only 2 times to have a sharp blade for removing splinters. The rest was oftenly used, but knife and scissors rarely.

    Will leatherman give me a new one? Living in europe they are kind of pricey here at 40 euros. Any hints where to send it will be appreciated..

    @flux: I suggest you try contacting LM customer service. Even with Victorinox, springs on the scissors seem to be a replacement item.

    Go to the LM website: https://www.leatherman.com/CustomerService-ContactUs.html

    and explain what you need. You may be pleasantly surprised. I hope so at any rate!

    L'chaim!

    thanks man. I just did that, and got an automated email back with a form and support-code. seems very painless to send that in for replacement.

    now the 40 bucks for this mini tool all of a sudden make sense when you got a warranty of 25 years and if they will actually send me a replacement.

    I will keep you informed what happens. will send it away this afternoon.

    In the USA, at any rate, Leatherman has been very good to me about replacing keyring tools when the scissors spring bar breaks off. I’ve done that at least three times with no hassle of any kind.

    Those scissors...”suck” in plain english.
    I have several LM and the PS4 scissors are an absolute joke.
    I’ve had to do warranty them twice with spring probs too.
    Warranty yes. Still a piss-poor design and/or execution.

    I fly 50+ times each year, and I haven’t come up with a better “sharp” that the TSA will let me carry on an airplane than the scissors on the Style PS (similar to the scissors on the PS4). Every so often — not every trip, certainly — having the scissors has saved the day for me. I’m certainly open to suggestions if you have any.

    Maybe they are familiar with those scissors, and recognize their inherent unreliability and therefore a lack of threat potential? J/K.

    The scissors on nearly every multi-tool are for minor jobs. I'd say those on the PS4 (squirt) are acceptable, especially for the size. I love having access to them from my keychain so that I can open containers and trim my nails as needed. I did an initial test and it can cut up to 32 sheets of paper at once with little trouble. I can't ask for much more than that. If I really want some serious shears I'll get the raptor (which is definitely on my wish-list).

    Cheers,
    H.G.

    The scissors on my Style PS broke not long after purchase so I sent them in and they were replaced, no muss, no fuss. Leatherman truly does stand behind their products.
