Replace the ​Pro Passthrough Flap


The Pro Passthrough flap is attached to the front door of your Glowforge Pro. It’s the flexible piece of rubber that hugs and provides stability for the material that you pass through the slot you’re making an awesome oversized print. 

You may need to replace the flap if it develops any tears or damage, or if it gets permanently bent upward and doesn't hug the material anymore. If you think you might be in need of a new Pro Passthrough flap, please reach out to our support team.

Once you have a new flap, you can follow these instructions to replace it. 

Before you get started

  • You’ll need a new Pro Passthrough flap and a T10 (Torx) screwdriver.
  • We’ve found the process is easier if you read through all the instructions once before you begin.

Replace the Pro Passthrough Flap 

  1. Turn off your Glowforge.
  2. Open the lid and lower the door.
  3. If the front Pro shield is installed, unscrew and remove it. Be sure to save the screws
  4. Remove the six screws on the white Pro flap with the T10 screwdriver. Save these screws too.
  5. Line up the new flap with the screw holes. The flat side should be against the door.

  6. Replace the six screws with the T10 screwdriver, so the flap looks like the picture above.
    Note: The two smaller empty holes are for the Pro shield. 
  7. If needed, install the front Pro shield. (Remember, you need to remove both front and back Pro shields before you make a passthrough print.) 

We have a wonderfully talented and knowledgeable support team -- many of them artists, makers, and crafters -- who want nothing more than to help get you back to printing and creating your world.

So if you have any trouble or more questions, please contact our team and we'll be happy to help!
