Default Motor rotates as I tighten prop



Icannot get the prop nut to tighten because the motor rotates as I tighten the nut.
How to you solve this problem?
The motor is an AXI outrunner.
Ishould also mention that Iam using a spinner.

If you can get at the motor, you may be able to tighten a zip-tie around the bell... hold the free end of the zip-tie with pliers while you tighten the prop nut.... remove the zip-tie before flying!
