Default Kaleidoscopic head stuck?

I bought a kaleidoscopic laser pointer, but one of the heads are stuck and I cannot get it off, I tried screwing it off over and over, but nothing. Help?

Default Re: Kaleidoscopic head stuck?

Yeah, that can be annoying. If it's really stuck in there, you might have no choice but to crush the attachment a little so that you can make a connection with the internal part of it.

One thing you could try... although not really that good an idea, wrap the tip/laser in plastic, run under hot water for 3-5 minutes, than stick it in the freezer for 10-15 minutes... Basic expansion/contraction used same approach with plenty of things, but... idk how well that would play with the diode, definitely don't get it wet.

Good luck.
