Step 2: Harvest the parts

  • To harvest the solenoid, simply remove the retaining clips from the bottom. I used my handy dandy Instructable Leatherman, but I suppose you could still do it with some lesser tool of sorts…
  • The bottom plate just kinda falls out after. Now reach in and pluck out the solenoid, its just wedged with nothing special holding it in place. Make sure to watch that the spring or the solenoids push rod doesn’t sproing out to be lost in some crack somewhere
  • You will also get a rather homemade looking switch that looks kinda like the trembler switch one of the bad guys use in the movie “the rock”. Set it aside to use in the future one day
  • There will also be a standard plug and cord, might as well re-use it, plus its a delightful golf green.
