Step 7: Firing

Picture of Firing

Remove the yellow rod from the green connector and flip it up. Pull the orange connector back until the rip is past the space between the yellow and gray connectors. Then flip the green connector into the way of the rod so it stays in place. To fire remove the green connector from being in the way. It can fire white or blue rods. If the orange connector comes off, just reattach it.
