Plastic joints are made up of three pieces: the shank, the washer &
the lock washer.
Insert the shank of the joint through the holes
in the head, arms & legs. Trim excess fur from around the
shank of the joint in the head, arms & legs. Do this around
the joint markings in the body as well.
Place the post of the joint shank of the head
into the hole at the top of the bears body.
Place the washer, onto the post of the shank
inside the bears body; place the lock washer, flat side
down, on top of the washer and press firmly.
To make sure the joint is tight, work the joint
back & forth a few times & press tightly again.
To get the joint extra tight, place the post
of the shank (with washers in place) over the top of a serger
spool or some other object with a hole in the middle & press
with the palm of your hand.
Attach the arms & legs in the same fashion
as the head making sure to check to see if the arms & legs
are pointing the right direction & the joints are tight.
