Royal Mail won’t post my tool. What can I do?
Do make sure that you package your tool securely to ensure that there is no risk to other postal items, employees or recipients. Royal Mail will ask you to declare what is in your package and our advice would be to say that it's an "outdoor accessory" rather than a multi tool or an item that contains a knife.

Some customers do have a sentimental attachment to their tools. We regret that we are unable to send you both a replacement tool and your original tool.

Each Leatherman tool consists of a combination of features that makes it a unique multipurpose tool. We cannot alter or substitute different blade components from one tool version to another.

Your replacement will need to be returned to us and upon receipt, we will arrange for your old tool to be returned to you.

Can I get on a commercial carrying my Leatherman tool?
No, at this time you cannot pass through the security checkpoint with a Leatherman multitool in your "carry-on" luggage. The following are generally permitted under the current TSA rules (updated 3rd January 2018) but its worth remembering that it may still be subject to additional screening or not allowed through the checkpoint.
- Juice CS3
- Tread LT
- Tread Metric
- Hail + Style PS
- Piranha 2
- Style PS
International laws vary and the final decision rests with the TSA officer on whether an item is allowed through the checkpoint for the safety of all crew and passengers. Please check the www.tsa.gov website for a full update on their Sharp Object policy. Also note that lost, stolen or confiscated tools are not covered by the Leatherman warranty policy.
