    Noob sub clasp issue help

    Hi, having trouble with my V7 sub, one of the springbars inside the clasp keeps shooting out. It's not the glidelock but the other spring.

    Any ideas on how to stop this happening?

    Thanks

      there are little indentations that the springbar seats into. make sure it is locking in there.

      it's possible the indentation is too shallow to keep the bar seated firmly. you may need to dremel it a bit.

          I have drilled several watches as the hole is not deep enough. It not attended to you might loose the watch in the arm.
          I than superglue the hardware ( bit the pin ) against the clasp. It than sits very firmly.?

          If it floats , flies or fucks it's probably cheaper to rent!

                  WatchaholicMallorca I know this is quite an old post but I stumbled across it this morning while searching. The EXACT same thing has happened to my Noob v8 clasp today. Just curious how you got on and what was the solution? Cheers

                    Had this same issue with my cheap knockoff glidelock clasp. The problem was 2 fold. 1, the hole where the springbar sits is too shallow. 2, the milling of the clasp was uneven on the undersurface. This resulted in the movable portion of the clasp being slightly tilted, causing the springbar to not sit into the hole. Had to dremel the inside of the clasp flat to remove the tilt.

                      I changed the spring that held it together with another one from a cheapie sub I had.
