Hey guys. So I got a gear cube last week and have been giving it some heavy use, really enjoying it. So there are a couple edge pieces but usually just my blue/yellow edge where during a solve or scramble the gear will pop out of alignment so when I get it all solved that one piece is still crooked. Then I will turn it half way and pop it back, but it is really a pain.

Any advice on what I can do to this to make it stop?

Also sometimes I am trying to solve for speed but there have been plenty of times where I am moving the sides slowly and it will pop like that as well. It's just so frustrating!

Did you pop the centre caps off and make sure the screws are really tight on all faces?

I have not tried tightening the sides yet but I will give that a shot, see if it helps, thanks

Tightening indeed might do the trick *crosses fingers*
