Battery Installation:
1. Requires 3 AA (called LR06 in some countries) alkaline batteries.
2. Locate the dial on the end of the ball, and unlock the dial by using a flat instrument,
such as a screwdriver or coin.
3. Holding the ball in both hands, twist sides in opposite directions and pull the blue side away
from the center.
4. Locate the battery door on the inside of the white center piece.
5. Remove the two screws in the compartment door and install new batteries as shown in the
polarity diagram (+/-) inside the battery compartment.
6. Replace battery door securely and reassemble ball before use.

We have an old leap frog learn around playground with tube topper and the balls are missing. can replacement balls be ordered

I have been working on this problem myself. The playground uses 2" diameter balls. So any 2"ball should work. Leapfrog themselves make repalcemetn balls for another toy that meet this criteria(Peek-a-Shoe Talking Octopus Spare Ball Set)..

My son's digital mp3 boombox is locked. How do we unlock it so we can play the music?

After much frustration, I've figured it out something that works.
Turn the mp3 player off, remove the battery cover, take out the batteries, put them back in, screw the battery cover back on, turn the mp3 player on, press the green play button. You should then see the "welcome" screen.
The boombox has continued to lock up frequently - almost everytime my son plays with the stinkin' thing - but at least I know how to unlock it now.
Good luck :)

I need help on how to replace bit on router craftsman style

You didn't state the model number. The older Craftsmen routers had a red lever lock on the top of the router, one position allows the spindle to turn, the other position locks the spindle. Here's the instruction for the older style routers:

  1. Unplug the tool.
  2. To lock the spindle press the red button in and slide it to the locked position.
  3. Unlock the height adjustment knob.
  4. Raise the router motor using the height adjustment collar until you can get a wrench onto the collet nut.
  5. Loosen the nut until it turns freely.
  6. The bit may still be locked in the spindle, tap it gently (not on the blade!).
  7. The bit will come loose in the spindle and can be removed.
  8. Replace the bit, tighten the nut snug but don't use excessive force.
  9. Unlock the spindle, returning the red lever/button to the free position.
  10. Adjust the height of the bit as you wish, then lock down the motor using the locking knob.

Cannot get food bowl off the Oskar food processor

My Oskar has two locking teeth on the bottom of the bowl. One at the 3 o'clock position and one at the 9 o'clock position. Grabbing the bowl at the bottom with one hand (using thumb and one finger), I twist clockwise (to the right) about 1/4 inch and the bowl unlocks and lifts off directly. (my unit's spindle doesn't have anything to do with locking the bowl. My unit must be 15 to 20 years old btw)
