    hi vapers!

    i just got my new ggts yesterday (or i just think its new, it got some scratch on it, and marks on the button) number
    528. Thats really a wonderful device and probably the best one out there couse im been
    vaping for over a year and been seen a lot of them.

    Problem is when i want tu disasemble the button and put in the magnets.
    it seems that i cant unscrew the button (not from the body).
    I try pretty hard with all strenght (it realy is unbrekable :laugh:) and it wont budge!
    Maybe to heet it up or put it in wd 40?
    Any idea would be great. Thanks

    Ps. Imeo please help couse im your friend too :)

    Use a pair of needle nose pliers and wrap a few layers of electrical tape around them to protect the ggts and button from scratches then use them to turn the bottom knurled ring of the button closest to the body anti clockwise.

    Hi Vp

    I can't disassemble the button itself, i did manage to take it from the body :D
    I want to put in the magnets, but the screw under the button will not budge
    no mather how hard i try to unscrew it. It seems almost like it's welded.

    I get you, I had that problem with one of mine at first. You need two needle nose pliers wrapped with electrical tape or something similar to protect the brass, screw the locking screw all the way down so you can push the button in then push the button in just a bit so you can crab the part that makes contact and with the other pliers grab the top of the button and turn it anti clockwise.

    Thanks man. I give it a try as soon as i acquire second pliers.
    as i look the top of the button i see some marks from the pliers on the edge.
    probably someone before give it a try2.

    That sucks, my setups were bought new from the Aus distributor and were in perfect condition, not a mark on them.

    Tried with a pair of pliers and nothing.
    Think there is not much i can do anymore, i can just brake it!
    I'm pretty mad by now!
    Only thing i can do, is to buy new button for my "new" GG

    I'd contact Imeo, he'll prob send you one for a few euros just to cover postage.

    I keep a pair of these around for working on things when protecting the finish is important. Works really well; 5 dollars if you shop around. Replacement nylon inserts are about 2 for a buck.
