I push the spring all the way through the grommet towards the reel, so the loop on the spring is resting on the eye of the grommet.  Then I attach the lure to the hook holder or eye and reel the line tight.
           I store mine between trips with the spring extended(all the way out) leave hook on and hook to holder, and tighten it up.  Always springs right back like the day it was new!!  I have the gold spring, if that makes a difference!

There was a fantastic step by step DIY thread on making your own in the Jiggin forum not too long ago.

Anyone mind linking this article in this thread please?

A couple years ago my wife got me a St.Croix rod with the spring bobber, $50. Well the tip broke about 3 inches from the end. Too close to the next eye to just put the spring bobber back on. I called St. Croix about warranty but they said it would cost me $20 plus shipping to fix. So much for what I thought was a lifetime warranty. So now I'm just looking to put the spring bobber on another rod.
