The worst thing that happens to Slinkys is getting tangled, right?
Well, to get them untangled you need only a longish, skinny piece of metal or
other hard-to-cut material

Step 1: Step 1

Find the other tangle at one of the ends of the slinky.

Step 2: Step 2

Collapse the slinky from the first tangle to the other, then push
that chunk through the awkward loop (first tangle).

Step 3: Step 3

Stick the stick through as shown, then spin the slinky.

Note: hard to describe here.

Step 4: Step 4

If you still have a tangle on the end, then take the top-most layer and feed it below the true end.

Step 5: Summery

Note: Plastic slinkys don't get that extra tangle at the end.
If you don't have that extra tangle, it doesn't matter which end you collapse
<p>Got where the physics engine of the universe glitches out and gets a silkie stuck in itself? Had to trash that slinkie because of that,</p>
<p>I made it worse....</p>
<p>Lost me. I have no clue what to do.</p>
<p>I did something wrong because now it's even worse than before.</p>
THANK YOU!! <br>Although all I did was random twisting and pulling, the stick part helped ALOT.
This happens with phone cords aswell i like to just sit there and try to get them out, when i have nothing to do.
Great. I've thrown away so many slinkies because of these tangles that I can't get out. Now, no more slinkies in the trash!
YAY!!! Now thousands upon thousands of innocent slinkies will be saved!
A clear solution to a classic problem.
yup, thease things have gotten me so many times, poor slinkeys :(
WIN! i think this could also work with those annoying phone cord twists too!
You are a genius!<br />
Your great It was of good help to me
