I’m sorry but, I have to say that the reassembly process is harder than simply ‘follow the instructions in reverse’; if you try and place the half with the buttons, the buttons fall out or end up misaligned ; and if you use the other half, the rubber covers and the tumblers will fall out.

Again, this guild comes off a little too simple, there’s more to it.
