Remove the black rod. We will glue this in place to keep it from wobbling around.

Now take a rocket and apply glue to the end cap to make a buffer. This will create more tension in the spring and add more launching power. Make sure to leave a little space for the catch tooth to hold the rocket.

Step 9: Repeat
