Spring retention reel maintenance

Guess I should've said spring saver.
Lost a anti-reverse spring on my first attempt to put my mitchell 310ul back together so I ordered another one and came up with a redneck way to keep it from happening again.
First pic is the red neck way of stopping it from happening again.
Second pic is of the spring that was and still is lost.

Yup, those springs like to fly away. I've spent more money than I would have preferred on ordering replacement springs. $0.90 piece and $5 on shipping...

Have you tried sweeping the area with a strong magnet to find the lost part?
