Picture of Here's the Trick!

Put the spring in backwards. It will take some fiddling, but it works best if the crossbars are in their slots, rather than having the spring part in the concave sections and the crossbars "in back of " their slots.

The spring coil will be a little in front of the clip cave section.

Step 5: Put the Clothespin on "backwards".

The reason for turning the spring around is so that the long end of the clothespin doesn't stick out as much.

Step 6: Done!
