Sorry, I believe i misspoke. I just mean that even IF the frame could close tighly, I couldn't be in trust to the frame with such a play on the hinge.

The axle which go through the hole of the nut at the bottom of the picture is bent on my bike (the "visegrip axle" on picture in 1st post)

I just plan to cut it out and replace it with a good (M8 ?) screw. The rest of the clamp seems to be OK.

I'll try to make some pictures and a video this weekend, it will be more clear.

I haven't a dealer near to my location, anyway it seems that the answer of the brand is "get a new frame"...
Repair kit for old Mu frame hinge (type A)? - Dahon Forum
In fact they don't bother to treat these kind of issues... Which is somewhere understandable...
