Step 3: Taking Apart the Laser Pointer
Take off the head and tail of the laser pointer, and remove any batteries.
Then, as you did with the light, stick a screwdriver into the side of the laser pointer at the Head end and create a grasping point for the needlenose pliers. After you have a point, begin to unwrap the thin metal casing from the actual device, which should only take about an inch and half of stripping at most. you can discard the casing afterwards.
