The spring is missing or bent

The contact springs are screwed into a nut like a screw, which is located in the connecting socket.

Now gently press the bushing against a flat surface to fully press the spring retainer into the bushing. Make sure that the contact spring is not kinked or bent in the process.

8) Press the battery compartment and the tube firmly together on both sides as far as they will go. IMPORTANT: There must be no gap between the battery compartment and the tube:

The spring retainers have two functions: On the one hand, they ensure that the spring is aligned with the center of the battery pole, and on the other hand, they indicate by color how around the light tube and the battery compartment must be connected.
