SUPER SOAKER MAX INFUSION OVERLOAD, REPAIRING THE TRIGGER OF YOUR WATER GUN
A while back, we got a Super Soaker Max Infusion Overload, which is a toy water gun.
Real nice water gun and worked great for a while.
Then the trigger broke and would not release. So water kept streaming out whenever it was under pressure.
This page describes how to fix your Super Soaker.
STOP NOW IF YOUR SUPER SOAKER IS STILL UNDER WARRANTEE.
JUST TAKE IT BACK AND EXCHANGE IT.
WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGE YOU MIGHT DO TO YOUR SUPER SOAKER
( We just had fun fixing it and are sharing that here )
Unscrew 13 screws
You will need to unscrew 13 screws to open your Super Soaker Max Infusion Overload. There's more screws than that on your Super Soaker so
don't just start unscrewing every screw you see.
Look carefully at these images to see which you need to unscrew.
The two screws at the top of the Super Soaker are longer than the rest of the screws. Keep that in mind when you reassemble it.
Remove the side of your Super Soaker Max Infusion Overload.
First remove the top half of the pump handle. Then remove the side plate of the Super Soaker.

The fix: replacing the broken spring with rubber bands
On an operational Super Soaker Max Infusion Overload, releasing the trigger shuts off the water blast, as a valve moves back into place.
This valve is pulled back by a spring (this spring broke on ours). You can replace this spring with some rubber bands. The rubber bands will pull the valve back into place.
Loop the rubber band around the plastic post near the nozzle, then under the metal arm, and back around the plastic post.
We started with one rubber band, then added a few more to really pull the trigger back back reliably.
Spring missing. Releasing trigger will not shut off stream
