How can I find and replace a key operated lock on an Antler Pulsar suitcase?

The catch is broken, a small ca 3mm thick grey plastic piece has broken off of a piece ca 5 x 8 x 10 mm. This whole lock apparatus looks like it can be unscrewed and replaced. The cases have two such locks as well as a Y02 combo lock. The combo lock is ok.

Try calling Canon's parts department at 1-732-521-7230 and see if they still have the part in stock. The part number is CF1-3129-000 and should cost less that $2.00 I think.

Tip

How to Take Apart Your Xbox 360?


1. Insert your index and middle finger into the memory slot holes, place your thumbs on the bottom of the Xbox (for leverage), and pull the face plate off with a steady force. It should come right off. 2. Break the Microsoft seal off. (Note that this will void your warranty.) 3. Now, flip the Xbox on its side and take a close look at the holes located on the top and bottom of each side. If you look closely, you can see that some of the holes are filled in. This is because the filled-in holes are keeping the grey plastic pieces on the top and bottom of the Xbox in place. 4. To remove the top and bottom grey pieces, use a small pointed object. Locate a grey plastic tab by peering into the holes, then use your pointed object to carefully push down and lever out the grey top/bottom cover. Both pieces have three tabs/clips per side, with a total of six per piece. To remove the top grey piece, you will have to remove the rubber pad. This is the only rubber pad you will have to remove. 5. With the grey pieces removed, take a close look at the back side of the Xbox. On the right and left side there are small notches that will require closer inspection. You again will need a small screw driver or narrow probe. 6. Using the probe, start on the left side (near power plug socket) and push the catch a bit into the Xbox until it clicks, then use a screw driver to keep the two sides apart. Once the left side is done, start on the right side and do the same thing to the rest of the catches. 7. Once they are all separated, the bottom of the Xbox will lift away. At this point slide it around to the front side and undo the four catches, keeping the case together. 8. Now grab your Torx driver set. You can use a T10 and T8 to do the job. You do not need a T12. 9. Unscrew the six T10 black screws, then use the T10 to unscrew all the silver screws. Finally, unscrew the black screws with your T8 driver . 10. Carefully flip the Xbox back over and remove the DVD button arm assembly to keep it out of your way. You just need to pry it off the black plastic guide. 11. Next, remove the top cover. Watch the DVD button latch. 12. Disconnect the SATA connector and power connector from the DVD drive and lift it out of the case. 13. To remove the white plastic air guide, locate the notch on the top outward side, insert your probe/small screw driver, and leverage the air guide out. It should lift straight out very smoothly. 14. Disconnect the power for the cooling fans. Now, use your probe/screw driver to pry the fan catches out from the metal guard. This will allow you to remove the fan device from the Xbox case. 15. Look at the front of the Xbox on the RF module, and remove the white plastic power button. It is held in place by a clip on the top and bottom. 16. Remove the three screws from the front circuit board (RF module). 17. Once the screws are removed, you will be able to slide the front circuit board off the Xbox with a slight pull. Notice that it is connected on the lower left side. You should now be able to pull the entire circuit board right out of the case with relative ease. Be careful not to touch any exposed circuits. 18. The next step is to carefully lift the motherboard out of the Xbox case. With the motherboard removed, flip it over and locate the two X connectors on the bottom. These are what hold the heat sinks on the processor. You can remove this; just be careful. It takes a little bit of force, which could destroy your Xbox if not applied properly.

How do I replace the spring in the latch door on my rn175


There are several methods for installing this little spring. My simple method. You will need 30 mm x 3 mm roll pin and a small piece of nail about 1/2 inch in length. It is very difficult to install the small factory roll pin so I use a longer one then cut off the access with Dremel. Remove the 3mm roll pin and pull out the lever discarding the broken spring. Fit the new spring on the lever using the 1/2 inch piece of nail that can pass thru the 3mm hole of the lever. The piece of nail should not stick out either side so that you can slide in the lever with short pin holding the new spring in place. Now insert the lever in place on the door and hold in position (temp pin aligned with 3mm holes in door ), lightly hammer in the long 3mm roll pin. The long roll pin will push out the temporary piece of nail holding the spring in place. Once the long roll pin is in place, cut off the extra length. Good luck

Can't fold phil and teds dash,


I successfully fixed this issue today on a 2008 dash stroller. first remove the handle, you will need to drill out the two rivets with a 1/4" drill bit, but don't go too far, don't drill out the plastic on the handle piece. unscrew the four brake cable clips. unscrew the two screws securing the grey release clips. Prop stroller on the handle bar side (put padding underneath so you don't mess up your work surface) and the rear wheels. now get two small bladed screw drivers, you can gradually pry down the internal plastic locking wedge on either side till it releases the front wheel section which folds down. (on the left side which is likely functioning, you can just pull the plastic circular piece down with your fingers, as the internal wire is still connected)
Now grab some vise grips, lock onto the locking wedge and remove the whole mechanism, also remove the foam inside with a screw driver (this likely is what was supposed to keep the tension wire in place). Take the locking wedge mechanism apart. ( you will need to push the steel pin out with a small screw, it does not take a lot of force) Get a small nylon zip tie and secure it around the shaft on the tension wire connecting end of the locking wedge. (this will keep it from ever falling out(pulling through) again. This part (the locking wedges) should have been made out of aluminum or stainless steel and the issue would never occur. You will need to trim the catch end of the zip tie and make sure that it can slide freely inside of the plastic sleeve. now slide off the nylon zip tie and set it aside along with the spring.
Take the circular plastic piece (the 4" part inside that is near the handle piece with slots in it) slide in the tension cable. Slide the other end of the tension cable into the frame from the handle bar side till you can reach the end from the front wheel side. Now slide on the tubular plastic wedge housing and lock it in place to the frame (the detente underneath the frame lines up with the bump on the tubular sleeve), then the spring, then the small nylon zip tie, then the release wedge. Secure the zip tie onto the release wedge shaft and aim the head of the zip tie down so it can slide freely. Put some Vaseline or white lithium grease on the release wedge so it slides well. If the release wedge binds up you will need trim the zip tie head a bit more so it fits.
Next take the removed riveted posts and drill them out with a sharp 1/8" drill bit about 3/8" deep. (Use vise grips to hold onto these guys, as they will get hot, and make sure to use some oil while you drill to keep things cooler. Slide down the plastic circularly plastic pieces (you may need small screw driver to manipulate them down) so you can re-attach the two grey release mechanism brackets.
Re-insert the two formerly riveted brackets through the frame which will locate the handlebar properly. Get two small 1/4" sheet metal screws. Put the black washer back on, apply firm pressure and screw in the 1/4" sheet metal screws into the drilled out posts with a drill.
Re-attach the seat and you are good as new.
Note: The instructions may seem a little tricky, but you can do it.

HOW DO I REMOVE IGNITION BARREL FROM R REG ASTRA CAR


Remove plastic shroud from column. Looking straight on at the lock, you will find a small hole about 3mm diameter on the housing close to where it bolts on...about the 1 o,clock position. Insert key, turn to position 1, and at the same time insert a small drill bit ( or something similar) into the hole and press downward to release the spring latch ( you will feel the catch move down slightly when a little pressure is applied and the key is in the correct position) at the same time use the key to pull the lock outward.

How can you get saddle bag open, that latch is screwed up?


The solution to this problem, unfortunately, will involve the destruction of two hinge pins; since the hinge is sold only as an assembly, the entire hinge will have to be replaced. I'm sorry about that, but I thought you ought to know that before you start the repair.

Look at each end of the hinge (on the outside of the bag); you will notice a hole and (it may take a flashlight to see it) the end of a hinge pin within. Those hinge pins will have to be driven toward the center of the hinge until the hinge halves separate; that's much less than an inch, but is SEEMS more like 30 feet. Use a nail set that fits loosely in the hole, or a hardened nail about the same size with the tip ground flat.

Once the hinge halves separate, you'll find that you can lift that side of the saddlebag cover only a very short distance; the nylon fabric hinge cover on the inside keeps the cover from opening more than a VERY few inches. The hinge cover is secured by 3mm hex bolts; use a 3mm allen wrench to remove the bolts and the saddlebag top should swing open far enough for you to get your hand inside.

Take a flashlight and examine high on the opposite side of the saddlebag, inside the bag just underneath the cover; there are two catches covered by a broad plastic shield. Use your 3mm allen to remove the plastic shield, then use a small socket to remove the bolts holding the catches to the bottom part of the saddlebag. You can now lift the top of the saddlebag off and reveal the bottom of the catch.

The cover of the catch is secured by 1/4-turn fasteners, you'll see the phillips-head slots. Turn the screwheads until all fasteners are obviously loose; the cover can then be removed. There is a bent catch actuator arm beneath; push the top (free end, well, actually MIDDLE) of the arm toward the outside of the saddlebag cover, and the catches you removed from the saddlebag can be freed and remounted on the saddlebag.

You'll see the bottom of the release button through the catch actuator assembly; push it out, back to its' normal position. You're likely to find one of two things wrong: the actuator arm (4XY-2841A-00-00) is bent or broken, the lock assembly (4XY-W2843-00-00) has a bent or broken actuator tab or lever. A bolt may also be missing from either the actuator arm or lock assemblies; that would typically cause misalignment or binding.

Replace the hinge, reassemble the saddlebag top with the appropriate repair parts, mount and take a nice, long ride to relieve the frustration.

Camera door thats holds battery small grey latch is broken


Try partstore.com they might be able to solve your problem. Also look at the latch and determine if it is attached to the front of the camera case or the back of the camers casing I am assuming it is attached to the back then you might consider caling HP back and ordering the Back or Front cover Assembly. Small pieces like this usually don't come by themselves you have to order an assembly, so when when u call for parts ask for Back cover assembly or front cover assembly, which ever it is attached to or apart of. Asking for a perticular piece they will not usually know what you need. You have to talk to them in technical terms.. Hope this helps you out...

My DSC-W1 camera's both tabs broken. I was looking for a solution when I saw this thread.
I decided to try to fix myself. Here is what I did

Tools needed:
> small nail file
> supper glue
> small piece of Alum Approx 1mm thick
> Sissor

Step1: File the tab base down about 1mm when you start to see the 'L' shape.
Step 2: Use sissor to cut the Alum sheet into Approx 3mm x 3mm square. Make sure it is flat. Position it on the base to try out the fit
Step 3: Apply supper glue to the tab base, glue on the square.
Step 4: Repeat on the second broken tab
You are done!
