    The vintage cufflinks I just posted about have swivel bars that are not as sturdy as I would hope. Recently I was wearing a cufflink pair like that - where the swivels opened up too easily, likely brushing against something - and one cufflink fell out through the butttonhole and got lost. I'm afraid of this with my recently aquired pair, as well.

    Does anyone have a remedy for this? How might one make the swivels tighter - agile enough they may still be moved when the cufflinks are inserted or removed but rigid enough they don't swing when the cufflink are being worn. Thanks.
