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 2: Step 2

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

Step 5: Summery

Done!
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
THANK YOU!!
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!
