Question about EFTA top tether--pic

How did it get like this?

And is there any way to bend it back? I tried doing it with just my hand but I'm not too strong

Re: Question about EFTA top tether--pic

You may have better luck if you try to pull it to the side rather than straight down (or did you try that already?)

Yes I did. It didn't want to go sideways enough to slip under.
ETA: I'm sure I could get it with tools... but I'm wondering if using tools will compromise the integrity.

I don't think you could hurt it with a pair of needle nose pliers. Atleast I would hope not!

Re: Question about EFTA top tether--pic

Ours did the exact same thing as well. Several times. DH had to fix it by using a set of pliers. He didnt bend it, but he pulled it to the side and managed to get it back under.

Im not sure how ours got like that either.
