BM 4x Clone Spring Latch Fix

I got a BM43 Clone in the other day, and to say quite frankly I'm impressed in what I paid for. (I have a real 42, on the way, in the mail, for you haters out there, i'll do some comparing then)

I have been tinkering around with the latch, because that was what the most notable thing out of the box was. The latch was loose and hardly worked. I figured it was a spring tension problem. So after poking around for replacement springs, I just decided to clip off 2 coils and reshape it. Worked like a charm! I'm still looking for replacement springs, (not the whole latch from doucenozel.com). Here's a pic if it even matters.

Anyone doing this might have problems getting the T6 Screws undone. Yeah, they Loctited those screws already. I used needle nose pliers to hold the screw pin in place. Unfortunately, on the second one you need to place two drops of super glue on the end and let set for 30 min. Go cook some food or something! After the glue is dried, the pin stays in place and the screw comes right out. Soak the end of the handle, latch and all in nail polish remover or straight acetone (like I did). Give it some time to set, and it should come right out. (I ended up soaking the pin overnight to get the rest of the gunk off.)

After you clip or replace the spring, easiest way to string it up, is to take your small T6 precision driver and thread it with that and slide the pin right behind it. Makes life way easier.

Just started flipping? Hard to find decent Balis in the $30-$60 range? The Search Ends Here!

Don't hold out for a BM42! Take that $400+ you are planning on spending and go get in line for an Alpha Beast! You won't be disaponted!

Thanks for the instructions :D that extremely loose latch on my 47 clone always bothered me!

    Well I'm here I was trying to post pictures but on this forum I'm not sure how to do it. yes I see the image but I can not upload because I do not see away if there was I was going to start a new thread and I see a lot of comps
  • 11:09
    Are they recent I love doing them if I could figure the site out I would post some videos and start a thread of my collected pieces I'm so addicted to buying balsi
  • 11:10
    We should do a comp and if I could figure out how to put up videos and pictures I was going to start a thread have some balis would like to show and see what everyone else has
  • 11:20
    never posted pics but vids are easy. do you have a yt channel? if so, just upload your video to your channel, then when you want to post the video, select the preset option for "youtube" and paste your link in between"
  • 11:20
    usually you will have to cut out the "s" in "https" but the rest just does it on its own
  • 11:21
    if you wanna post any videos of your knives in general, start a thread in "the knives we flip"
  • 11:21
    if you want to post a video of you flipping, post it in "the art of flipping"
  • 11:22
    if you want to do a challenge/competition, make a new thread in challenges, either calling someone specifically out, or issuing an open challenge.
  • 11:22
    then, in the text box within the actual thread, state the rules of the challenge, number of competetors, etc etc
  • 11:23
    pm me or just use this chatbox here if you have questions about anything
  • 11:29
    Where would I go to upload my channel to what channel in the settings area?
  • 12:17
    you dont need to upload your channel. all you have to do is go to whatever thread you want to upload the video to, select the youtube tab. and then copy the url in between the brackets
