    fixing the Monstroid toy

    Hi and hello every body,

    I am hoping someone has experience fixing the Monstroid toy. The mechanism has broke. I have taken apart the toy and the mechanism has a metal coil inside. I believe it acts as a spring. The problem I am having is reassembling this mechanism. Does any one know how to do it or who can help me?Its the metal coil that seems to be the challenge.

    Thanks image_369.jpgimage_370.jpg

    it looks to me like the straight part of the coil slips into the clip there. that's all i can tell from here. funny my monstroid broke after i read this, but not this way, i had to glue a stem back on.

    I have fixed many items that use those springs, and it is very difficult to get the spring back in, you have to hook it up in 2 places, in the center and on the edge. Then usally it most be spun around a few times to shrink it to the right size to fit into place. Good luck and I hope some of this helps.
