I'm having some problems with my Black PuzzleProz brand Square-1. It fell apart when I was solving yesterday, and when I tried to reassemble it today, whenever I do /, the screw turns, either counter-clockwise if I do / clockwise, and clockwise if I do / counter-clockwise.

I don't know why this is, and I don't think it was happening before. Have any of you had this problem with your Square-1, and how do you fix it?

Thanks for helping,
Brian

Did the screw actually come out when it popped? because this might be the solution:
There's suppoused to be a washer in the mechanism that keeps it from turning (because the spring grips the plastic or w/e and turns the screw)
You either need to get a washer to put inside it (between the spring and plastic)
The washer is pretty tiny and could have come out... although if the screw/spring didn't come out when it popped, I'm not really sure what could have happened...
