Air compressor switch

So for some reason, I thought I'd take one switch off a working (small) compressor and put it on my bigger one. Instead of unthreading the entire switch, I just took the cover and the contacts out. Well, it's spring loaded in there, and can't seem to get it to stay together, without the part thats connected to the spring popping off before I can get it back in place, to screw it down.

Anyone ever made this mistake and got it back together? I can't find anything on how to put it all back together.

PS, I know where everything goes. All the little parts I have in order and in the right spot. It's just holding it all together while trying to get it screwed down tight again.
