    Anyone have the Rupes LL150 Pen Light? If you do, how do you fix this?

    I was fidgeting with it too much over the weekend, and I think I screwed off the head from the 'pull' base?

    So now, the head just spins and spins but doesn't 'rethread' back on the way it was before.

    Anyone know how to take this apart?

    Hmm there is a dirty joke here but I’ll keep it G rated for the forum Anyone have the Rupes LL150 Pen Light? If you do, how do you fix this?

    Unfortunately I don’t know how it can be fixed. I will have to look at the Rupes pen light that I have if I can still find it.

    I'd have to have it in my hands, or at least have a pic to be able to give any advice.

    Did any parts break? Are the threads stripped?
    It is no coincidence that man's best friend cannot talk.

    I looked at mine and there seems to be no way to replace that component. Try pushing it back with a little extra force.

    Unforutantely I think I had the magnifying piece fall off some part inside, that can't be threaded back on for some reason..... Oh well lol.
