Oooooh! He-Bro's site has a fix, I think.
When i got my webstor toy as a kid, his rope was loose and i just stuck it through the backpack. I've never managed to get him to climb up his rope.
I just noticed looking at the packaging art where it says something like " pull gently on the string to make him climb up"???
Does anyone know if there's a proper way to loop the string mechanism to make him actually climb up by pulling on the string?
I can't find any threads that discuss this.

thanks! that's exactly what i needed to know, i'll give that a try tonight.
I had the same problem with the Webstor figure I had as a kid. I'm glad someone found a way to fix it.
Webstors were infamous in my area for being over-complicated and impossible to use right.
Ohh, I can feel a review thread coming on!

I guess I got lucky. Mine works fine, just had to pull a couple little knots out of the string.
Same problem... but I always thought he went naturally this way, was he broken instead?
Not sure why my post was locked when this one doesn't address my issue. That's why the search was not my friend. So I'll ask again
Anyone know how to get the string case apart with it cracking or breaking?
You have to take a chance. It might break when you do it. The glue it old and should give way pretty easy, but it's not a guarantee that it won't break.
So decide, is it broken enough to risk it, if not, don't take the risk.
Take a hammer and a small flat screw driver, put the tip of the screwdriver in the seam, tap it lightly. (Do it from the bottom since it may cause some tool marks)
Then twist the screwdriver to split the housing apart.

thanks! The string went inside and this is the only way i guess to get it out
OK gonna try this today. Hoping I don't crack/damage the backpack too much!
Any chance someone can do this on video? The walk through is a great gesture but it totally confuses me.
My string backpack worked fine but the dang flimsy grappling hook kept breaking .
I always had a special place in my heart for Webstor, since he was the only figure I was ever bought as new - all my others came second-hand. So Webstor was the only one I ever got to open the box of.
That being said, I never had any idea he could climb by himself until I read this thread today.... obviously far too complex for my four-year-old brain!
