what to do if your Evangeline's wrist is loose and floppy.


The most common cause of a dangleing wrist is the elastic getting pulled out and caught in the wrist hole or the knot being pulled to far forward and getting jammed.

here you can see that the elastic is pulled through the hole allowing the s-hook to dangle.

straighten the elbow joint and grip the lower arm. Carefully pull it off of the joint until it clears the post

line the lower arm up with the post and push it back together intill it is fully seated. Make sure that the joint is alligned to allow the elbow to bend in the proper direction.
