Hello again awesome backers!
We've had a few people contact us saying their Opena™ case bottle opener is a big tight or a little loose, however it's easily fixed with a simple tweak. Also if your having trouble removing your Opena™ Case then check out the last video below.
Tuning your Opena™ Case
When you first start using your Opena™ it may be a little stiff but just like a new pair of shoes you need to wear it in to get it feeling just right. You can also easily tune your Opena™ case to make the slide just right for you. Its a personal thing. Some people like it stiff (don't be dirty) some people like it loose (again don't be dirty).
Tuning your Opena™ case is very simple. All that is required is to apply a subtle bend to the bottle opener, which in turn increase or decreases the amount of pressure required to slide the bottle opener in and out. The more bend you have the tighter it gets.
Slide the bottle opener out and push down on a hard surface like a table or wall as seen in the above photo. We do not recommend doing this on your mum's piano, stainless steel is much harder than wood!
By pushing down on the blade you can achieve a slight bend in the blade which will make the blade stay locked in when not in use. You only need a slight bend (as shown above).
Removing your Opena™ Case
We designed the case to be a super strong so it would protect your phone from daily use. Its not designed to be taken on and off all the time but if you do want to remove it the best way to remove the case is to slide the opener blade into the out position (so you can push on the back of the phone) then, using your finger nails, grab the front edge of the case (on the side without the buttons) and flex the top and bottom corners of the case outwards until you feel the phone pop out (you need strong nails). Then once both corners are free you can simply rotate the phone out of the case.
Don't forget to post some photos of your Opena™ Case in action on our Facebook page.
