CAn't keep my rollers in

And my afro come has broke.....

Getting a bit sick of the rollers sliding down the shaft that they are on. The inside washer keeps working it's way past the little lip that is meant to keep it al in. It's becoming a right royal pain. Any ideas how to stop them? Thought about putting a dab of chemical metal to make the lip even bigger? OR is it a new jobby?

Don't think I could get a smaller washer to fit on the shaft as it's not round. The shaft has square sides.

Drill a hole through the shaft & stick a split pin through it on the inside of the washer ? Done this on all sorts of things to stop the same thing - just drill as small as you can get away with.

Or a jubilee clip on the inside avoids drilling...... and stops the washer slipping.
