Assembly Tips

Fidget spinners love to rip wires out of breadboards at high RPM. This section details how to avoid that from happening.

There is a bit of clean-up involved with this wiring. Spinners snag onto wires. We tried to make the clean-up as simple as possible by utilizing the parts from your kit. 

First, let's clean up the Spin Zone. The area in-between the light-sensor and the LED is the area for the spinner to move around. We suggest using the long wires included in the breadboard wiring bundle. Tuck the wires in underneath the board and use a piece of tape (or in our case, a quality control sticker) to pin them down. 

Next, take a shorter breadboarding wire and wrap it around the wires for the LCD. You can also use a zip-tie for a more permanent hold. Plug the ends of this wire into the breadboard.
