    • Flip the mouse's power switch into the OFF position, unplug any cables, and flip it over so the feet are facing up.

    • The unique shape of some mice can prevent them from laying flat. If you need to, lay your mouse on a soft towel to prevent wobble.

    • If you're planning to reuse your existing mouse feet, note that the adhesive needs to be thoroughly heated for them to be cleanly removed.

    • Heat an iOpener and apply it to the mouse feet for about two minutes.

    • Alternatively, you can use a hair dryer to soften the mouse feet adhesive.

    • When using a hair dryer, don't heat the feet for more than a couple seconds at a time—anything hotter than just warm to the touch risks melting or warping the plastic lower case.
