Is going to a shop for a loose spring worth it?

Ello there, I was just playing and ran into a decent issue. I believe I accidentally snipped it with my fingernail, but the spring holding the pinky Eb flat key came loose. Now the actual key is affected by gravity. My question is if any of you think it's worth it to go to a technician for this. The spring itself is not broken, it just came loose, so I'm fairly certain I can just use an adhesive to reattach it.

    needle springs go through a hole in a post. You slide it in and push it in tight with needle nose pliers. Make sure it is facing the correct way inorder to be activated once it is clipped back on its hook.

    No adhesive used.

    Good Luck.
