The trouble is, that my two pieces appear to have gone wrong whilst I was fiddling with it. The two pieces line up with eachother, so that one can slide over the other, the two 'side loops' preventing more motion. Does anyone have a way of getting to the stage as shown in the video from here? I'd be most grateful
