I have been using a Husky folding, lock-back knife from Home Depot. It has a belt clip, and I usually keep it clipped to my belt.

On at least 4 occasions in the past year, I have found the knife on my belt and partly or completely open, exposing the razor-like blade.

I tried calling Husky & Home Depot at least 3 times before contacting the CPSC, but they did not want or know how to handle it as a safety problem despite the fact that I tried to guide them there.

This open-blade problem can affect the wearer of the knife and those around them. This last event, around other people, told me that it was a safety problem that needed to be addressed, but Home Depot did not seem to want, or know how, to do that during 3 calls today.
