Lionel steam engine and the tender coupler won't stay locked. As soon as it has weight pulling on it, it releases.
Any ideas how to prevent that from happening?
An easy quick fix would be a rubber band or a twisty bag tie, there's a lot of things they are on besides bread bags.
You be surprised how many different sizes and colors they are on all kind of stuff you buy.
When you start looking at all of them you will notice.
Find a matching color.:thumbsup:
Or even some fishing line transparent 2 LB test would work..
Or you could fix it the right way and replace it.
A lot like the cheap way and if you do it right you don't even notice.
But if you want to do the cheap way do it couplers that you won't be taking apart a lot.
I would pick the wire ties as you can take them off a couple of times and reuse them fairly quick.:thumbsup: (Color coordinated of course)
