Shomway is also right about the bolt disassembly/assembly tool. It's well worth the $50 as it takes about 15 seconds to disassemble or assemble a bolt with one and no springs flying across room.
My record, before I bought the bolt tool, was Pinging the spring off two walls and the ceiling, with the spring lost forever in the carpet!

All the best.
