Hot glue gun
Clear packaging tape (or thin clear plastic sheet like used in old transparencies for projectors)
Crazy glue (or super glue)
Crochet hook (I used size I/9-5.50MM but could use 1 size smaller or bigger)
Silver marker (or white grease pencil or anything that will show up on the cassette plastic)
Small Phillips head screwdriver (not seen in photo, my apologies)
Small hinges (Could also use flexural hinges if wanted)
Fabric (I used some thin dark green fabric, anything will work - Not seen in pictures in this step)
Step 1: Disassemble VHS Cassette
Next pry off the metal spring using a screw driver or pull with fingers (watch eyes)!
Also remove the hinged lid that covers the magnetic tape, you can discard any springs attached to it.
Lastly remove the spring loaded plastic clip that locks the lid in place and discard it (see final photo)
Step 2: Trim insides to allow hinged movement
Also trim other protrusions at the top (as seen in photo 3).
Lastly trim the two flat protrusions down for they are the last interference's (as seen in photo 4).
