Hi ladies,
I just purchased my thin love today, and I literally worn it the minute I got home!
As I was admiring it, I noticed that there’s quite a big gap in the hinge ...I didn’t notice this when I was inspecting it in the store....is this normal???

From your picture, that is not the side where you use the screwdriver. There is a slight gap on that side, which is normal. Whereas, there shouldn’t be a gap on the side where you use the screwdriver.

Mine are new. Depends which angle you look at. On my pic they seem to be huge; from a different view they are hardly to be seen.

Be aware we are talking about the hinge side of the small Love.

One more comment I just checked if I hear or feel some clicking on my small ones and ... yes. I believe it's because of the locking mechanism which is different than on the regular ones.

I agree. This discussion has been mentioned on some other threads previously also.

The small Love does have a small clicking sound because there’s a little “give room” as I like to call it for the hinge mechanism to work.

I notice it if I push/pull the bracelet apart a little (depending on its current position, creating the small clicking sound), and I think it does have to do with the hinge design of the bracelet as the classic is not like that, being flush and tight on both sides of the screws.

did this gap happen over time or were they like that new? i checked my thin love and it’s tight on both sides
Good question, I would like to know too. I bought this yesterday and honestly didn’t see any gap in the store (but now I’m doubting myself, in my excitement, wondering if I checked it carefully enough! ) . I wore the bracelet for most of the day and noticed the gap in the evening.

That’s right, the gap is on the hinge side. The screw side there is no gap and it’s tight. I do hear a clicking sound when I gently squeeze the bracelet together tho.

The gap at the Hinge side is normal . Is the bracelet locked when the click sound happened?
