i bought a cheap pair of linesmans pliers and welded a small flat bar to extend them like long nose pliers, insert the pliers into the spring so it fully compresses or closes up and carefully insert the spring onto the hinge lugs. Good luck and you will have a special tool for the job in the future or you can pass onto a friend.
