i didn't find any threads on this topic, i don't know where else to post it.

i was wondering if it was legal to ship a laser with the spring taped with electric tape, you know so it doesn't complete the circuit. of course this would only be true for those that you can twist apart.

scenario: custom person puts batteries in to check laser, it doesn't turn on, they reverse the battery, it still doesn't turn on. now i wonder... would they take apart the laser to find out if it has electrical tape and/or see why it wasn't working?

anyone have any experience with this or any insight? i'm really curious. if this post is deemed unacceptable im sorry and you can delete it.

I don't think that would be illegal, the customs agent would probably think it was a broken laser and have no reason to test it's output to know if they needed to test for the mandatory class IIIb FDA requirements.
