    use wire ties at the hinge. I have never had the white thingies and that is what I do when I take my egg apart.

    happy eggin

    I didn't need them when I took mine apart. It stays shut or open pretty good

    Not sure what you're talking about; buy some cable ties would probably work

    Like MrCookingNurse said above, I feel the same. This is how I travel with it and never used the white deals.

    I just take off the hinge spring before I remove the dome.

    easiest way is to remove the springs, they come off easy with a screw driver or pliers. have someone hold the dome open when removing the springs, it takkes the tension off on them. they come off and on in 20 seconds

    I promise I'm not trying to be a jerk.

    But the easiest thing to do is nothing. There's hardly any tension on it, and it stays open or closed.

    I would zip tie it. When I took mine apart the hoop pimp slapped me.

    I'm so sorry but I totally just laughed out loud and had a mental image of it pimp slapping you. My coworkers are staring at me funny for laughing.

    There's definelty nothing wrong with Zip tying for a little safety.

    Mine will spring open pretty easily also. I have several of the white thingies laying around though.
