How do Lego blocks work?

The tubes on the bottom interlock with the studs on top of other bricks. The studs get neatly wedged in between the tubes and the sides of every brick making them stick together firmly. The clutch power of LEGO® bricks has made it possible to create bigger and bigger sets without them falling apart.

How do you unstick a flat Lego?

Here’s where the LEGO Art Brick Separator really shines.

  1. Put the flat end of the brick separator next to the tiles you want to remove.
  2. Press down so it lifts up the other side like a lever. Make sure the rest of your LEGO set isn’t moving – you may need to hold it in place.
  3. The tiles should pop right off!

How do you remove small Lego pieces?

Removing bottom plates

  1. Attach the studs on the brick separator to the bottom of the LEGO plate. You should feel it click into place.
  2. Lift up on the handle, using the ridges for a secure grip.
  3. As you lift up, the angle of the brick separator should get the plate to easily pop off.

How do Legos stick together?

Most Lego pieces have two basic components — studs on top and tubes on the inside. A brick’s studs are slightly bigger than the space between the tubes and the walls. When you press the bricks together, the studs push the walls out and the tubes in. All of the basic Lego elements use this principle to stick together.

What is the Orange LEGO thing for?

The tool is a beautiful thing, often orange or teal, a slope with a few funny bits at the wide end. This tool has three main purposes, I gather: a wedge for separating bricks from base plates, a lever for applying pressure up or down to pull bricks away, and a sort of pokey bit for removing wheels from axels.
