Hi. Anyone has any idea in removing the side cap of dark magic 2?? I accidentally put one of the cover inside out and suction cup cannot remove it.
Sounds like your only option is to try to pry it out with a knife point.
Duct tape(the plastic backed fake stuff, not the metal backed real stuff). Stuck on, rub down for a few seconds to get good adhesion, wait a minute(more OK, but not needed) and YANK!!
It also helps if you make yourself a pull handle by pinching it in the middle.
Warning: This method may yank off some of the decoration.
Note: Smooth side out!!
Does not work. Still stuck there
Use hot glue and pliers. Worked for me when I had the same problem.
How? Use hot glue and glue the pliers there before pulling it out?
Make a blob of the hot glue on the cap, large enough to be grasped securely with the pliers. Grap with pliers and pull. You can usually re-heat the glue a bit to remove the blob afterwards.
I haven’t done this myself.
Could not work cause I don’t have hot glue
Then you have two choices:
Punch/drill/cut a hole in it, stuff something in there to yank it off. Probably not an ideal solution.
Live with it.
You can send a self-address stamped envelop to YYJ to require a replacement, but that might take a while considering postal times both ways.
I took a tack to the edge of the cap and pried it out from the side. It will mash your cap and maybe stratch the aluminum.
can I use silcon instead.
Probably not. Hot glue sticks better.
Just take a knife and carefully work around the edge prying it up. Should work ok.
The other option is to wet the suction cup. Makes it stick better - just lick it.
