The pivot screw runs away and the glasses branch loose? Here's how to fix it by being clever and without spending (a lot).
If one of the screws securing the branch is lost, troubleshooting with a paper clip is possible.
- Replace the branch and lock the hinge by passing the trombone rod through the hole in the screw.
- If the screw (tiny) is unscrewed regularly, to prevent it from disappearing again, drop a drop of glue (super glue for metal) on the thread of the frame: it will not fall any more.
- Replace lost eye screws with identical screws retrieved from worn out watches. Not to mention quartz models and electronic equipment.
- If attaching a loose cord, the troubleshooting solution is to pass two elastics around the limb and tie a knot with the cord.
These microscopic screws require precision screwdrivers.
