My Egg moves in the nest when I open the lid? Suggestions?

It is a large egg and I have put all the internal components in.  I also retightened all the screws/bolts on the eggnest except for the ones I can't reach directly under the Egg.

Specifically, the bottom of the front Egg moves up when I open the lid.  Pretty heavy at this point (now that the lid is attached) but maybe I have to try to reset the egg in the nest? Any other thoughts would be appreciated.

    If the egg was properly seated in the nest, this shouldn't happen. There should be "hard" contact between the bottom of the base and the cross members on the nest. 
  • This has been a situation on and off in the past.  Do you have the vinyl tips on the nest?  These were designed to help grip the Egg and keep it from moving.

  • Yes, I have the vinyl tips on the nest. I will try and lift it and re set it in there.
