Step 1: What You Need
Step 2: Unscrew
Remove the screws from the pocket laser show.
Step 3: Remove the Red Laser
Carefully open the case and make sure the wires don't break. Unscrew the red laser, you can either leave it hanging in the casing or cut it off.
Step 4: Drill a Hole!
Close it for now and drill a hole here.
Step 5: PVC Pipe
Now your going to need your PVC pipe. My PVC pipe it around 10CM long. I attached a piece of plastic on it so it gets stuck in the hole from the pocket laser. You can basically use anything depending on how big the hole in pocket laser show is to attract the PVC pipe. As long as it does not fall off and can hold the weight of your laser ofcourse.
Step 6: Attach the PVC Pipe
Attach the PVC pipe to your pocket laser show.
Step 7: Put Your Laser in the PVC Pipe
Put your laser in the PVC pipe. I used some tape to keep the laser on. The Core 5mW can basically stay on until the batteries run out aslong as you watch the tempature of the laser. If your using a more powerful laser be careful to not go over the duty cycle.
