SOURCE: Blade falls out.
the lever for the lock has a indentation in it to lock the blade in place (at 90 or 180 degrees try both) make sure it drops into same in blade. not all brand blades will fit even with the word universal! good luck

I would go to Dewaltservicenet.com and type in your model number on the page and it should bring up a schematic that you can download and see where the part goes. Let me know if you have trouble finding it, if so I need the exact model number.

K you used the saw after inserting blade?? If so couple ideas, hold collar open and put saw blade in a vise and try pulling back on saw, or you can remove the quik lok cam and release it that way, its not that hard, but I would try vise first. Let me know

SOURCE: blade stuck in reciprocating saw
The pin is probably stuck in the blade. This happens from time to time after they get dirty. Take some WD-40 or some other type of penetrating oil and spray a little in the blade holder while working the release lever. It will probably free right up.
