    I dissembled a black forest picture frame clock and this tension clip fell out. Now I am not sure where is goes. In the photo I laid it on the plate. It is black, made from a strip of metal with both wings bent up. Any thoughts? 20190930_141305~2.jpg

    probably under the hour cannon or motion works to provide just enough tension to the minute hand to keep it moving but not slipping.

    This is the clutch for the minute hand. It is mounted underneath the wheel that drives the minute wheel. This is part of the motion work outside the plate on the front of the movement. On top of the wheel with the spring underneath there needs to be a thin washer that is held with a tapered pin.

    The spring "legs" should be toward the gear, not the plate, when you put it in.
