My folding utility knife is sticking when it opens, and doesn't always lock in the open position. Stiff to unlock as well.

How to put in a new blade

This question is from Folding Lock Back Utility Knife
Asked by
Frederick, MD
Read all my Q&A
November 8, 2015
I can't get a new blade to go into the Husky folding lock back utility knife. The sign on the knife says to press in on the button on the blade holder part of the knife near the handle. I do that and still can't get a blade to slide into the slot. It feels like there is something blocking the slot near the middle of the entry point to the slot. There is no way any blade will go into that slot as long as this blockage is there.

Am I doing something wrong or is the knife broken?

Thank you .

Answer: 
First of all it appears there are a few different varieties of the Husky folding knife. For one of them you press down on the button to remove the blade, for another, you push the button up. It sounds like you have one that requires pushing the button in. If it seems like there is something preventing the blade from going into the slot, it could be that the button is not engaging the blade retention Read More
First of all it appears there are a few different varieties of the Husky folding knife. For one of them you press down on the button to remove the blade, for another, you push the button up. It sounds like you have one that requires pushing the button in. If it seems like there is something preventing the blade from going into the slot, it could be that the button is not engaging the blade retention mechanism. In other words the button is not pushing the internal part that holds the blade into the knife when the button is released. If you have verified that there is nothing stuck in the slot, then I suspect the knife is defective. I suggest you take the knife to Home depot and speak with one of the associates. They should be able to check the tool and if defective, will most likely replace it for you. Read Less

Answer: 
You press the release button toward the handle and slide the outer part that has the oval hole down and this will reveal the blade, so you can lift it out.

Answer: 
I had to look at everyones answers to get my mind open to understand my blade:
The top of the blade has a flip lid. Once that is open, you can see from the top
edge where to press to open the blade area.
Thanks everyone!

Answer: 
We must be talking about different knives. The one I refer to has a small button just in front of the handle. The problem is keeping the blade in. It falls out with annoying regularity.

There is a release on the back of the handle blade, when pressed down it allows the blade to slide out and a new one slide in.

Answer: 
Normally if you take a tool like this back to Home Depot they will replace it for you. My understanding is that Husky tools are made by Dewalt which also make Black and Decker tools. You might try to get in touch with them.

Rated 4.0 out of 5 by 145 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by This knife's blade does not pull out. I currently have five Husky utility knives. I bought this one because I had temporarily lost four of them. I have a gold, a silver*, a black*, a red*, and this orange one. All but this one have the blade release toward the front of the blade hinge and you push up on it to release the blade. This one has the release near the handle and you depress a button to release the blade. When cutting thick material, the other knifes releases the blade making it somewhat unsafe to handle, this one does not. I WOULD NOT recommend the other Husky knives. I would recommend this one. *Bought as a set. March 11, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Very poorly engineered tool There was little thought that went into the design of this knife. While it is made from good materials that fact is overshadowed by the poorly designed blade release button. The knife is not very long so when you get a good grip on the handle, it is very easy to slightly depress the blade release button resulting on the blade falling out. If the button was lower or designed to release when lifted it may help. I would not recommend this tool as there are many other knives available that do not have this kind of problem. I am a handyman so I use many tool sin many situations and this one has frustrated me to the point that I threw it in the garbage. October 5, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Disappointing Blade is not securely held in position. A useful knife MUST have a firmly fixed blade! Too bad a nice idea was poorly executed. February 3, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Improvement Over Old Style I really like this style of utility knife over the older style that had two halves held together with a screw. I always hate having to grab a screwdriver to replace a dull blade. With this knife, the blade comes out with the flip of a lever. Of course the trade-off is no internal blade storage, but I still prefer this design. January 20, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by very useful on everyday work The knife is a must have on all my heating cooling and appliance jobs use it more times in one day than I can even count. Very durable product. Its easy to use and great folding action lasts years unless you loose them of leave them at a job site. June 13, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Cut Hazard The push button model is 100 times better hard to close when dirty December 19, 2015
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Little screws fall out I guess I can recommend this, if you do one thing when you get it home: Take out all of the little screws and apply a threadlocker such as Loctite. Otherwise you will lose the screws eventually, I guarantee it. October 5, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Seems sturdy, slight issue with blade release placement Purchased this knife to cut up some drywall to fix a hole in the wall in my garage. Knife has some weight making it feel substantial. I have only used it one day so I have not experienced some of the issues others seem to be having with reliability. Only issue I have is the placement of the blade release button. I found that I sometimes hit the button accidently while cutting, allowing the blade to come loose.Easy to slide it back in place and "click" it locked. I like the folding design, similar to a pocket knife. I am keeping it despite fears of possible failure assuming, fingers crossed, that Home Depot will honor the lifetime guarantee. January 1, 2012
