Looks to me like the spring is missing or the hi-hat rod isn't going THROUGH the spring to catch it and hold it up. I'd take the stand part, turn it upside down and hope that the spring falls out so you can put the rod through. If it doesn't, purchase an appropriate size spring and repeat steps above. That to me seems like the basic solution. It could be more technical. I guess it just depends on the inner mechanisms of you HH stand.

I turned it upside down and was able to get the spring out. Now I see the problem is that the spring doesn't catch where it looks like it is supposed to. It can loosely slide all the way up the push rod. I guess it has worn out over time? I probably need to buy a new spring, but I'm curious if anyone knows of an easy way to rig it that will get me by until I get the spring?

Maybe an appropriate sized washer to catch the nodes on the hi-hat rod, yet still rest atop the spring to compress it. It would have to be just big enough to slide on the hi-hat rod, but still fit inside the stand and be able to compress the spring.

I'm gonna see what I can do with the washer idea. If I come up with a solution I'll share it. Thanks for the help, Kelly!

Got it fixed up already! A couple strips of duct tape and it works perfectly! Sweet!

Lol well as the saying goes " if you can't duct it, f**k it...". I'm pretty sure it's just the washer that you're missing so hopefully that is only a temporary solution. Nickels holding up a dollar...
