Dismantling Plastic Outdoor box


M

I have an outdoor box made of snap together plastic panels. The type
the B&Q sell for £99 odd. I think the make is Keter.

I want to dismantle one without breaking it. I know that spraying snap
together plastic parts is easier if sprayed with WD40 or lubricant but
has anybody tried?

Doesn't it come apart the same way it went together?
Nope! The parts are made to snap together. Bloke in our road tried it
and ended up breaking the thing big time.

With anything plastic, "snap together," if you just warm up the joints with a hairdryer, you've a better chance of dismantling them without breaking them.

If you are on about the sides if you look underneath push the two front clips in and hold them in using two screwdrivers then go to the back underneath and ull see a bit where it interlocks place a screwdriver to open that and dont pull from the front always from the back and it should just slide out without breaking it it's easy thanks tommy
