So what I do is throughly clean the retractor mechanisms and lube them. A lot of what causes the retractors to slow down is a lot of built up of debris. Everything from dust, dirt, hair, coins, gum wrapper, petrified French Frys. You name it, I’ve probably have found it. It literally had one that had a huge mud wasp nest built inside a retractor. I have had a few where the counter balance was broken, but I was able to replace them with the spare parts.
I also do the same with the metal buckles. They get disassembled for cleaning of debris.
Thanks for the info I appreciate it. I might be contacting you if I don’t have any luck to get a rough estimate from you.
