Re: Laser Pistol Box Issue...

i have seen multiple threads on here and Facebook on breaking the free, normally involves a large knife slipped between the seams or a hammer and thin chisel if its a tough one, being extremely careful of the vintage cardboard no doubt, but i have never done it and will accept no blame if it goes wr...

Re: Laser Pistol Box Issue...

Thanks, will give it a try. Never against bouncing on a sofa to sort her flaps out :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: I don't think it will work, as the inner flap has prised out, so it will need a push back into place. damn, dont think you can do much without actually being able to touch it, a glowing advert...

Re: Laser Pistol Box Issue...

would turning it on its end and bouncing/ bumping it on a sofa cushion persuade it to drop back into place? if not i dont see you will be able to do anything without physically touching the flap, which of course means cracking her open!
