Something got messed up with my mail slot door, it stays open now. Would someone guide me as to how to (re) place the spring?

The curl on the end of the spring on the right is suppost to be in the same position as the one on the left.
Just going to have to play with it with a pair of needle nosed plyers.

About 1" down from the top of your photo is a tiny metal loop. Shouldn't the hook on the right-hand end of the spring be hooked into this loop? That way it should pull the flap closed.

Can the spring slide all the way to the right on the rod? I suspect that the hook on the spring needs to hook over the edge of the slot frame on the right hand side of the opening.
