Ok Lynn. I haven't fixed a Tatsy, but I have fixed a Susan Bates plastic shuttle. Get out a pot and boil some water - enough to cover the shuttle if it bounces around. Drop the shuttle in and leave it for a few seconds then very carefully remove it and using pot holders (it will be quite hot) squeeze the tips together. Don't squeeze too hard or you will warp the bow of the plastic. If you can't get it tight enough, drop it in for a few more seconds. The key here is SECONDS, and not more than a few t a time. This worked for me. I make no guarantees about Tatsy shuttles. They may be a different kind of plastic. If it's sprung too far, you won't get perfect results, but it works pretty good for a small opening.
Hope this helps.
