  • Using a Phillips Head #1 screwdriver, unscrew the 15 screws on the bottom of the device

  • After all the screws are unscrewed, remove the bottom plate

  • Keep track of all the screws and which slot they came from, as they slightly differ. We recommend this system: lay out on a piece of paper and pretending the paper is the device. Place the screws on the paper approximately where they would go.

What if I didn't keep track of the screw placement? Right now, all I know is that there are 8 screws slightly shorter than the other 6 (excluding screw under factory seal).
