To disassemble this unit:

1) Take a flat head screwdriver and wedge it between the barrel and the rivet. (Pic 2) Once wedged in twist the screwdriver causing further separation. (Pic 3)

2) Pull the barrel off and twist the bungee out. (Pic 4-5)

To assemble this unit:

1) Slide Barrel onto Bungee (pic 5)

2) Twist Bungee (1/4" or 6mm) through rivet, so that the bungee comes through the tunnel hole at least 1/8" or more. (pic 4) (I.e. it should be sticking out the end with the screw hole.

3) If the bungee is frayed use lighter to singe. (Pic 6)

4) Pull the barrel down over the rivet causing the teeth to engage. You will need a pair of pliers to do this step.(Pic 7)

NOTE: It is important to know how to do this so you can adjust your bungee if it is too loose. You can always take up some slack if you understand these instructions.
