    Are you talking about the earsocks, having trouble sliding them on/off? Use some hand sanitizer as lube - there's a few threads here on the subject...

    Ah, you mean the washers for the hinges? There are some threads on that, too - I think one's a sticky.

    Basically there are a few variations of techniques, but some common ideas are to use a dab of spit or something to help keep them in place, and to use a toothpick or needle to help line everything up before you put in the screw. Personally, I got it done with the toothpick. But, however you do it, it's always a real pain...

    Threaten them with the Glock and see if you can scare them into cooperating :aggressive:
