Hi partners out there, well this is my first post, hope you like it and hope could be useful for somebody ; I´ve been doing things from myself a long time ago, but this is the first time I take time to show; I´m an average drum player, and learned things practicing, because I´m very empiric.

Step 1: Well First, This Is the Broken Lug, Because of a Cheap Kit and Hard Playing

it broke, so we´ll need a new lug, usually you can get the original bass drum lug, but we´ll use a double lug.

Step 2: Place.

All equipment we will need, notice that´s a double lug, is originally form snare drums, but we´ll convert it to a bass drum lug.

Step 4: So We Start.

Taking the tom or toms out, we nedd our Bass drum to be disengaged from any equipment.

Step 5: Disabling the Screws.

after disengaged from toms and pedal or pedals, we got to wind out the crews from the lugs.

our lug got to be looking like this, so we are targetting that spring in the center, specially the sleeves in tne extremes of srping.

Step 13: Push.

both sides of springs, push it, sometimes get really hard, so if you do it with something else, be careful of pieces to fly.

Step 14: Sleeve.

this is the sleeve we´re taking out, the snare drum screws are different, so we must convert, got find the broken Lug, and search that piece, when you got it, keep it.

Step 15: Seems Shitty.

BUT, we must look for the old sleeve AND spring, because is bigger and brings best results; so we put it like this behind the sleeve, that way it pushes that piece against lug.

Step 16: Remember Is a Double Lug
