 I know it is a somewhat simple repair but I took the chance to make another ible when I had the chance.

Step 1: The Problem

Picture of The Problem

 First thing you need to do is identify the problem. once that is done find out what you think you can do to construct a solution to that problem. As you see below the pump was broken off due to just normal little kid wear and tear

Step 2: The Inventory Look

 well you found out that you can fix the watergun.......................BUT you need to find the Exact piece to fix it well your not going to have the EXACT piece to fix it unless you go out and buy it. I tried screws,nut bolt,and other things but the small screwdriver was the only thing that fit into the hole.

Step 3: The Quick Fix

 Well this fix should be simple you take your cylindrical object that will fit into the hole and hold it there. If you used a screw driver or something similar to that you probably need to keep it from sliding through by putting nuts on the end I screwed and glued a wing nut from a previous project on to my screwdriver. I suggest water proof liquid nails it works wonders.

Step 4: The Dry Time

 If you used glue you need to let it dry. 

Step 5: The Ending

 Well if you have followed these steps then you should be done and all you have to do is try it I got my little bros to try it for me though. Like I said in the title this is a TEMP job it should only last for a couple months. My little bros watergun has been fixed in this manner for about 2 months. Have fun!

As simple as that? I like it, you'd think that someone could put a bit more thought into designing them right in the first place...
