    I have a pair of gen 1 frogs (made in Japan with metal hinges.)

    One of the arms is very loose (just tilt the glasses and the arm closes.)

    Is there anyway to tighten it?

    I was thinking unscrew the screw and detach the arms. Then use a needle nose pliers to gently squeeze the hinges to make them closer/tighter.

    But I don't wanna ffff them up!

    Anybody ever done this?

    Thanks ...

    You have to be very careful of breaking them in that case... I won't try to do so.
    Can't you just tighten the screw a bit? Another option might be to source some small shims... Oakley uses them also, for example on the vintage e-wires.
