The following excerpt from an exchange between Tom and me about his invaluable instructions for taking apart and putting back together the Kodak Readyload gadget should be noted by anyone who wants to avoid tearing his/her hair out putzing with the innards of said gadget.

Ray: The verbal description of the position of the little bar is correct, and its position in the first photo of Step #5 relative to the open or "business" end of the gadget is correct, but the following two photos show the bar reversed by 180 degrees.

Tom: Yes, it appears it is upside down in the phtoos. I'll retake those while I'm redoing the other photos. The description is right, the photos are wrong. The two little notches near the little holes in the bar should face toward the open end of the holder. Thanks for the catch!

I'm glad the page was of use.

Good luck!

Oops! Thanks, Ray, for the reminder. I just updated the photos to fix the problem.
