    • Pull apart both halves of the cube until the screw in the core is visible

    • Tighten the screw with a screwdriver until the speed cube rotates with the desired smooth motion

    • Repeat for as many sides as needed

Conclusie

Test the speed cube out. If the cube rotates smoothly then you have done the repair correctly! If the cube requires some force to rotate then you may need to loosen the screws of the core.

If more pieces have popped off, the process for reassembly of the pieces back into the speed cube's core is similar to steps 4 to 7 detailed in this guide. However, if more or different pieces of the core fall out or get damaged then the guide may not work as intended.
