Are you sure that you have uploaded the right file?
I could nowhere find your uploaded subparts in this file.
The screws are misplaced...

The composing parts are now uploaded. Resubmitting to re-add the (Complete) moniker to part title and to refresh the part image.

(Complete) is deprecated now that we have a shortcut type. This is a shortcut, not a part since it is composed of several elements

Sorry, I'd forgotten to upgrade my hold vote after checking the subfiles. But Philo is right - this is a shortcut.

It looks good now, but the two parts 984 and 987 also needs some attention.
984 has two bfc inverse ring-primitives.
987 needs to be modified for BFC compliance.

Thank you Steffen, for making the descriptions all look alike.
I can't vote since I'm the last editor of many of the files.

I've sent a request for renumbering of the two subfiles to Admin.

I think the part title could be better, the spring is clearly the main function of the part. I don't know what to call this device, though. The middle axlehole can be twisted up to 90 degrees and returns to its original position if relaxed.

Totally agree that the description is not good. Bricklink calls it "Axle Connector Rectangular Triple Spring-Loaded" which at least gives some clue.

Maybe we could call this "Technic Torsion Spring Box 3 x 2"?
I assume that it's a torsion spring inside. I have one here but the screws are too small for me to open right now.

I would expect something describing what it actually does, Return to Centre.

That sounds quite ambiguous to me. What returns to centre? On the contrary, a torsion spring is a well known device, much like the shock absorber.

I managed to open the part up and there is a torsion spring wrapped around the axlehole. One end of the spring is attached to the axlehole and another to the body of the part. I did not find any numbers for the composing parts.
