    Provari spring came out - how to fix?

    Hi provari lovers!

    The spring in the bottom screw-on bit from one of my minis fell off and I don't know how to attach the spring again. Does it glue on or is it supposed to thread on somehow? It's not the extension cap, it's the normal flat end cap.

    Cheers in advance!

    To re-install the spring, I recommend using needle nose pliers. Holding the narrow end of the spring and using a downward force, rotate the end cap counterclockwise to thread the spring into the end cap (the end cap hole is actually threaded for the spring). If the diameter at the base of the spring is too wide, you can take those same needle nose pliers and twist the spring from the wide end into a tighter circle. This helps to seat it better.

    Yah, I have been trying to twist it back into the grooves with pliers and it's just not going in. I don't know where I'm going wrong. It's like I can thread it in a bit but then it just pops out again. I thought perhaps a touch of glue was needed too, or something.

    Try not to use glue. It will bite you in the bum. If you can get a start, Poke it in with your nail file from the bottom or a small screw driver. This will work, I am living proof. If you try and turn it in, you will distort the spring, again, I am living proof!! I used a small jewelers screw driver. Missus wouldn't lend me her nail file.
