Handle Locks - Remove and Replace


Selected Glowforge printer packages come with white handle locks. Instructions for how to remove and replace the handles follow. If you're moving your Glowforge and can't find the handles, you can tape over the holes instead. 


Open Handle Locks

We’ve designed the packaging to make it easy to get your Glowforge out.

  1. Identify Handle Locks

    Your Glowforge box is locked tightly by 4 handle locks on the bottom of your box. (If your box doesn’t have them, skip this page!)

  2. Unlock the 4 Handle Locks

    Hold the white tab on the right side of each white box handle.

  3. Open the Handle Locks

    Pull each white tab from right to left, opening the handle like a door.

  4. Remove the Handle Locks

    Gently pull the frame of the white handle to remove it from the box.

  5. Keep all 4 Handle Locks

    These lock the Glowforge box together and are required for proper shipping of your Glowforge unit.

  6. Continue unboxing your Glowforge!

Replace Handle Locks
