For Type 1 Fixes, if you remove the détente ‘ears’ using a small flat screwdriver or needle nosed pliers (See the ‘useful tips’ section under the Type 1 Fix heading in the ‘Videos’ section of the website), this will remove the ‘click’ fit, reducing the force required to install and remove the panel. If you do this, please protect your eyes, or cover the Fix with a gloved hand. If required, you can remove all of the détentes to facilitate a frequently removed vertical panel, but please be aware that there will be no force other than gravity keeping it in place.

On Type 2 Fixes, the détente force can be reduced by carefully removing a small amount of material from the détente ears using a small file or sharp knife (file or cut from both sides, retaining the angled profile of the edge); do this incrementally until the required pull-off force for the panel is achieved.
