Thoki Yenn had difficulties with this model. It was easy to get the net on to an A-format, but how to close it, or find a lock for it, kept eluding him for a long time. He was so eager to find a solution that he did not see the obvious. He had to be half asleep in that special state of mind, where I can help. I start him folding mental paper and show him what to do.
