Image 1/3: Pinch the front half of the body on both sides with your thumb and index finger just below the first extruding rim of the front plate while simultaneously pulling the back half away. This may take some effort to do. Image 2/3: Be careful to not pull the halves of the body away from each other too hard because the internal wires connecting internal components may break. Image 3/3: Take note to remove and set aside black screw mounts located in between the halves at the bottom of the lantern.
  • To disassemble the main body, grip the lantern so that the front half of the body with the power button on it is in your right hand and the back half with the hand crank is in your left.
