Opening the plastic case

by jprsmk on Sun Mar 24, 2013 7:46 am

I assembled my usbtinyisp kit and it works.
However when I tried to snap both sides of the enclosure I felt some resistance. Somehow it was closed forcefully.
Now the bottom and the top of the case are slightly misaligned.
Is there any way to open the plastic case without damaging it further?
Sorry I cannot take picturespics.

Without pictures, there's no way for me to understand the problem. Is the misalignment interfering with use of the USBTiny?

The programmer works.
The box just looks like the upper side is bent a little left instead of a seamless connection.

You can try popping it open, but I wouldn't force it too hard.
But since the programmer is working, if it were me, I think I'd leave well enough alone.
