Introduction: Sugru Tool for Opening Disk Drives and Pushing Reset Buttons
I work on a lot of computers and have straightened lots of paper clips over the years. Usually I I have them in odd places on my workbench or in pen cups. I lose them all the time. My idea is to make a Sugru handle for my handy paper clip tool which will make it easier to find and easier for me to handle. No more fumbling with paperclips.
Step 1: "The Disk Drive That Won't Open"
I have this disk drive that is old as the dinosaurs. It frequently needs a little help in opening.
Step 2: "The Bent Paper Clip"
I really prefer jumbo paperclips but I did not have one tonight so I will make due with a regular paperclip. Bend the Paper clip so that you will have a support for the Sugru, kinda like a key.
Step 3: "Making the Sugru Cool"
I have black and white Sugru, so why not make a stripped drive tool. I rolled out the Sugru into roped and put the ropes together.
Step 4: "Applying the Sugru"
I wrapped the Sugru around the paperclip and shaped it to roughly a key shape.
Step 5: " Waiting for It to Dry"
Ok, here is the hard part waiting for it to dry.
Step 6: "Testing the Tool"
Ok test to see if your new Drive/Computer Reset tool works.
