DIY: Money Clip Fix (Versions 1-3 only)

It's rare, but sometimes a Wally Bifold (Classic and versions 1-3.0) or Wally Euro money clip can malfunction. If your money clip is off-center and tight, simply turn your clip counter-clockwise as shown in this article.

Here is how to fix your clip if it's either:

  • Loose or floppy—unable to hold notes
  • Stuck or frozen—will not raise or lower

The issue to fix is the assembly of the clip, which is actually made up of four separate pieces:

  1. Hinged clip 
  2. Tiny ball bearing 
  3. Small inner spring
  4. Flexible spine


To disassemble your clip, simply unscrew the upper portion until it is free from the lower spring.

TAKE CARE: The inner components are very small and easily lost. 

Your clip must have all of these components for proper function, and must be assembled in the order shown above. If the ball bearing and small spring are not in the correct order, the clip will become stuck. 

If you find that the inner components were incorrectly assembled, simply rearrange as shown in the photo above. Our video below will walk you through the process:


However, if you are missing a piece of your clip, please contact us for a replacement clip.

If you are having issues with your newer wallet's clip (which is not the adjustable kind), please see this article.
