    My RDA is stuck...

    Hi all,

    I have a noob question. I bought Trident RDA clone from Fasttech and it arrived today.
    I have been trying to take it apart to have a look, but I think it's stuck.
    I think the problem is:
    a) It's very stiff and the parts are not moving
    b) I'm not strong enough to force it apart
    c) Both of above

    So here's my question - how do you take an RDA apart when it's really stuck?
    Apart from the drip tip, I can't move any of the parts.

    Take the drip tip out and getting something long and thin enough to fit through the drip tip hole like a screwdriver and then push the base out from the inside. Might need to wrap some tape around the end of the screwdriver if you are worried about scratching it.
