Canon battery grip – how to take off

My customer had a Canon camera – and the (original Canon)  battery grip was no more possible to be taken off. This type of grips have a big actuator wheel for the fixing screw – which unfortunately is made of plastic, so easily can loose the teethes of the pinion. I decided to carve away all the plastic, to have access to the internal pinion of the screw.


After a few minutes of machining with a small hand drill I had access to the pinion with a screwdriver… and the grip was in my hand.

    Whoa. Looks you are skillful, as the slot on the side of a grip, isn’t touched by the drill.
    (If i would do this, the drip will be damaged 😀 )

Opinion, question?
