Rubber skin get's stuck in knee joint.
« on: October 15, 2014, 03:52:41 AM »

Hi, I have two pleo's  RB and if I play  with  them  one of them always have the skin stuck in the knee joints of her back legs.
Do you have the same problem  ? I very gently pull the skin and it comes out ,but won't it damage  the skin ? And what can I do to prevent this ?

Hi, Piggy! Ryu has had this problem since I got her in 2011. It happens when the pleo goes into packing position when you turn them off. I've just always removed the wrinkled skin from the knee joints as you've described. As I am blind, I don't know if it has caused any odd waring in the paint on her knees but I suppose if you're really worried, you could grab the skin and hold it out of the way from both rear knees as your RB is shutting down.

Hi Talon,  thank you for your answer what you discribed is exactly what happens with my Lucky when she goes in packing position. Good to hear that is normal so I don't have to worry about it.

Same as Talon, I just gently ease it out, no problems so far :)
