Show a picture or give us a description of how the laser is assembled and maybe we can help you.

If it's your 5mW green, the guts might be pressed in pretty tight.

Why do you want to take it apart? the IQS 405nm pens are already turned up about as much as they can be as it is from the factory.. at least all mine were. There's no point in trying to 'pot mod' one unless you intend to replace the driver with one that would source more current.. and if your wanting to go to that trouble, just do a PHR build in a small cheap flashlight.

Though they aren't really pressed together. Just glued. But your almost guaranteed to break them if you try to dismantle them unless you cut the host away from the module/driver.

You could remove the diode and make a 445nm laserpen of it. The module is normally pressed in the pen.

Heres the pics. Can someone tell me how to do this without using any big words?

BTW, the 2nd pic is a view from the battery side. I took the foam piece out.
