As per title, any other way of improving the ratchet, other than a stronger spring, to both
A/ hold the silly thing in place and
B/ so you could possible hear it ?

Drives me mad on the odd times I use them.

Many thanks Graham

Maybe worth replacing the two springs on the mechanism with Akios ones (they are a straight swap) as the Akios ones seem a lot stronger. I'd also periodically replace the mechanism, including the white spool cog as they do get worn over time.
If you know a friendly engineer get them to make you one up in alloy on the lathe? or brass make it nice n clicky!
