    First off, no pictures.

    Someone suggested turning the little spray tips on theWORX sprayer with a small screwdriver.

    No!

    If you do, it will push inward and jam the adjustable head. So here is what you do:
    1. Lay a towel on the table, because little bearings and springs are about to fall out.

    2. Working over the towel, use an Allen wrench to remove the central screw. That is the stainless steel thing in the middle. Carefully lift off the spray head. Locate the tiny ball bearing and the tiny spring. Also make sure you see the rubber tube thing that sits on a bigger spring. Set the lower part all aside.

    3. The little tips are all inserted from the inside of the adjustable head and they have tiny o-rings. Using the Allen wrench as a Punch and something like a big spoon or small hammer, tap the tip you want to adjust out.

    4. Use petroleum jelly (tiny amount) to lube the o-ring and carefully orient it in the new position. Gently tap it back into place. Repeat with the other tips if you want.

    5. Gently wipe a film of petroleum jelly on the inside of the spray head and on the black rubber tube thing. That way it will slide smoothly when you rotate the spray head later.

    6. Assemble the head by holding the lower half, place the springs, rubber thing and tiny bearing back in position. BE SURE NOT TO DISPLACE THE TINY BALL BEARING.

    7. Gently place the top half over the bottom half. Do NOT press. Insert the stainless screw and gently and smoothly, tighten it with the Allen wrench.
    This may take two tries to get it right. Test the head to make sure it rotates smoothly and the bearing clicks into the different indeing positions, that's what it is for.

    Takes ten minutes, does not bugger the brass nozzles or jam your adjustable spray head.

    Easy.
