I have a Garrity Industries #06443....AND BELIEVE IT OR NOT.....I cannot figure out how to open the case to change the batteries. I can unscrew the top of the unit to access the bulb. And, I assume that the small, notched end of the unit unscrews to access the batteries. I just cannot open...even with channel locks. So, I want to be sure that is the correct way to access the batteries before i really crnak on it....Thanks for your help. Bill

The notched end of the unit is the lid of the battery cover. It might be cross-threaded. Immerse that end in hot water and then twist holding with a dry towel. Hopefully that should open it.

Makita ML 140 torch. Old battery would not hold a charge as it was very old. Torch works well with a new Makita PA14 battery. But the handle gets quite hot and I need to dismantle it to find the problem. One would not expect heat from the handle but rather from the head. I have undone the screws but the swivel part also has to be removed for access. What is correct procedure? I am radio technician Thanks, Dave B.


Remove the lens, and bulb holder. look down into the cavity, and you will be able to see the spring loaded pivots. Find sonething narrow to push them in with, so that you can remove the head. here is my fix (with photos) for the 18v version
