    Deployant clasp sticking a little - suggestions?

    One of the spring pins on my depoloyant clasp is sticking a little bit. Any home remedy type suggestions as to how to get it/keep it loose? Its not a big deal, and I really prefer not to have to send it in, unless it gets worse. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Regards,
    -Jeff

    I would suggest silicone spray lubricant. You can find it at most hardware stores, even Wal-Mart.

    What about dunking the deployant buckle into an ultrasonic cleaner for a few minutes to loosen up any dirt that may have accumulated? Most jewelers have them on site, they might be open to helping with that. If nothing else it'll come out looking a lot cleaner...

    Thanks both for the suggestions. I'll try the silicone spray first, unless I happen to be in a jewelry store before I get a chance to pick some up, in which case I'll try waruilewi's idea.

    I've had the same problem with two of my Ball deployment clasp's. I used a very fine pair of watchsmith pliers and bent the small tang back a bit. Worked like a charm. Gotta be careful though. You could even used a very fine file and hone the tang down a bit.
