Switch internals for quick repair job

Hey all, my switch pinged apart so I just wondered if anyone has a quick internals diagram so I can piece it back together?

Good to hear you managed to fix it anyways! Just send a message to support if it breaks permanently and we'll get a replacement sent off to you

yeah, I worked it out in the end after I found the bearing - I did put the bearing in the switch first before the spring which still seems to work ok, then bonded the metal cover to the plastic body with a little gorilla glue to keep it secure

We've had a few people pinging apart switches, which is unfortunately not something we had happen to us when testing, but we'll take a look at trying to prevent it from happening - our best guess is that the metal clip is pried off when pushed into the hole at the back of the head.

For reference, I've jut quickly taken some images of the parts withing the switch and how to stick it back together:
