My clamshell heat press pops open!!

Recommended Posts

Any ideas why it is doing this? I have adjusted the pressure as high as I can and it still does it. I got hit in the face with it once and it busted my lip and put a dent in the wall behind it... any advice would be appreciated

Post a pic it might help too. Some of the cheaper presses have weak pins and they wear out relatively quickly if not lubed well. If yours are worn it could effect the over center ability to the point it won't allow it to lock again. I have heard of people drilling the pin holes out and installing larger ones to get a tight fit again.
