    Lifetime warranty, send it in for a repair.

    Have the same issue with mine. Leatherman says 5 weeks for a warranty "repair". I didn't bother.

    Could be that the washer is wearing out faster because of the WD40. Can you take the washer out and replace it? If it's starting to go, there probably isn't any way to save it

    Perhaps that washer is teflon. It may be wearing because of grit.

    Actually 20 year warranty but by then I am sure the person will have something new. Then again I still have my original Wave so I take that back.

    But just send it to Leatherman with a description of the problem and a return envelope with the address and stamp already on it. Their turn around time is excellent.
