  • At the bottom of the device, a blue cord runs through the perimeter and can carefully be plucked out.

  • A couple of screws holding the circuit board into place are hiding in the top left corner of the device. (Pic 6) Removing them will loosen the metal bolt that helps the device close (Pic 7) and can be separated from the base.
