On the spring loaded one a metal pin will fit through a hole in the black to keep it in place. Ensure your blade is not broken and has a hole for the pin to go through.

How do I remove the blade that is stuck from a Craftsman jig saw with the easy release?

Hi Tom:
Don't know what caused it to get stuck, but my old Craftsman just has a spring loaded metal tab that holds the blade in place. Have you tried using a screw driver to gently pry the release? It shouldn't require brute force but a bit of gentle persuasion shouldn't hurt.

Dewalt 331k jig saw blade falls out

Blade catch wears out too fast
I loved this tool when it was working but after not that much use the teeth that hold the blade under pressure no longer hold hard enough to prevent the blade from coming out. The mechanism that holds the blade has no catch hole, it uses a few serated teeth to pressure hold the blade in place. Unfortunately, once the pressure starts to lessen you can't tighten it down...

Just received a used Bosch B4200 jig saw and I can't figure out how to change the blade. This is the first bayonet style blade jig saw I've owned. I don't see a screw to release the blade.

If this is similar to mine, (sorry I don't recall the model number, but it's a GREAT saw!) there is a knob or lever on top of the handle that you pull up about 1/2 inch. Then you turn that handle 3 or 4 turns (counterclockwise) to unscrew the clamp holding the blade. When you do this you can't see anything happing, but the blade can then be pushed into the holder just a bit and twisted 90 degrees, then you can pull it out. Installation is the reverse. Don't overtighten the handle, just turn it clockwise until it stops, then back it up until it lines up with the handle and you can push it back down. Good luck, Please vote if you found this helpful.

ive had this problem many times, first make sure you have the right blade, then you need to make sure you are seating it correctly, and tightening correctly.
