If you want to get the top off to "pot mod" it, don't.
If your laser even has a potentiometer, adjusting it will likely kill your laser.

Chances are, if you have no idea how the laser operates, disassembling it will be a waste of time and money.

If you want to get it off, you can try applying a relatively low amount of heat to the top. This should soften any epoxy or glue and expand the metal enough to come off with a little force.
If that doesn't work or you don't want to burn up your laser, you can try the wood block method.

Don't even try to pot-mod it.
That video on youtube is BS...
The crystal inside will oversaturate, or the diode will die.
