The fulcrum is actually too far forward on that knife. It should have been replaced. I can possibly make it work properly with some modification.
Read the thread "5mm Swing guard" under "Switchblade Knives."

Dear Mr Shivs I just sent to you my injured swing guard Hubertus to look at and hopefully fix. Will you please let me know when you receive it, as well as what you think you can or cannot do to remedy my knife? Also how much it will cost me too please. It went out to you on the 20th

Patrick,
Please contact me directly at mickeybeep@aol.com about specific repairs, rather than on the forums.
I have not received your swing guard picture.
