Step 4: Remove the handlebar grip. Use soapy water as a lubricant if needed. Remove the strap from the exposed handlebar and let it back into the volute spring by hand.

NOTE: (If you do not feel tension fighting against you, we will have to rewind the spring assembly as shown in the video below. This volute spring assembly is not the resistance provider, it is only responsible for recoiling the strap and holding up the handlebars. Over tensioning this spring can cause damage to the part.)
