Default Servo saver HELP

I was taking the servo saver off my servo last night when the spring popped out and hit me in the face. Now I cant get the spring back in. anyone have any suggestions?

Just keep fiddling with it...you'll get it back together. My friend blew one up the other day -- he took it out of the package and blew it up (AT THE LHS COUNTER!!!)...it took 10-15 minutes to get it all stuffed back in, but it went.

We were chasing parts all over the place...

Just take a deep breath.

its a pain to put it back together. expect some sore fingers afterwards. the way i do it is, get two needles/safety pins, stick it in two holes but dont close it, slide the spring inside and try to push it in. then close it and take the needles off.

I think I held it *almost* together, then stuffed the spring in at both ends, then sorta squeezed the front and back together to keep it from popping out...then jammed the spring the rest of the way in.
