You want to pick your spinner up using your thumb for support. The finger you have on top doesn’t matter as long as you have room for the spinner to spin. Make sure that your hand is a flat and evenly balanced as possible. You don’t want the fidget spinner leaning too much one way or the other. Evely balanced holding posture is important when it comes to the quality of the spin when dealing with fidget spinners.

Now, that you have it held with your fingers and it’s evenly balanced. You will want to either do one of two things at this point.

You can either tilt the fidget spinner at an angle a little bit and take your opposite hand and give it one good swipe. Or you can keep it flat and balanced as is and swipe it that way. I have personally found it to be more effective when I tilted it in an angle spun it than it did in any other position.

Why Your Fidget Spinner Isn’t Spinning Long

Many fidget spinner owners have gone through this in some form or fashion. But I have been dealing with these things for a long time. Over the years I have come across a few things that can cause your fidget spinner to spin like a premature tornado.

  • Sticky Residue – Sticky residue can get in between the fidget spinner and cause it to spin slowly or not spin at all.

 

  • Cheaply Made – When a fidget spinner is made with junk material you can tell very easily

 

  • Incorrect Holding Position – If you are holding the fidget spinner in all kinds of crazy ways and angles it can affect the spin duration with your fidget spinner.

 

  • Your Finger Tip Is Touching The Spinner – When you spin a fidget spinner your fingers are very close to the spinner and if you touch it while spinning. It will slow the spin time down.

 

  • Bad Swipe – In order for you to get the best spin out of each swipe it much be direct. If you half swipe or barely hit the fidget. It will not spin for long.

 

  • One Or Both Of The Caps Are Loose – Fidget Spinners have two sides to them. Both of which are covered with caps. If these caps are loose it can cause spinning issues.

 

  • Dropping The Fidget Spinner – I don’t know what it is. They are very durable in many different ways. But after you’ve dealt with them as long as I have and seen a thing or two. You know that dropping these things too many times takes the fight out of them. Or the spin I should say.

 

  • It’s Breaking Or Broke – When Fidget Spinners start breaking they don’t spin as much as they should. Each piece that was used to make the spinner was used for a reason. So the more of that breaks off the less effective your spinner will spin. If its broke then thats it for that particluar spinner.
