Broken Rubik's Twist (aka Rubik's Snake)

Postby microUmar » Mon Apr 04, 2011 10:02 am

I recently bought standard Rubik's snake (24 pieces/segments), while making shapes my son accidentally popped one of the joints apart. No idea how he did that by pulling or forcing it in wrong direction or what!

Is it possible to repair or fix it back.

I would think so.

My suggestion would be examine the piece that came off and the piece it came off from. Then look for a way that it might go back together. But you also want to look for if the piece looks like it has been broken.

My first twist was broken to, and it can't be fixed. It was a peace with a broken part inside with a spring.
What kind of peace is broken?

Well, I some how managed to make it join again as it was, by pulling apart (little bit so that it did not break completely) blue triangles and pushing spring part (actual joint) in white piece (while keeping snakes shape)

After fixing the joint is slightly loose but it works
