Mod #2: DIY Radio Removal Key

Right, for this Mod we will need

  • 1 or 2 Macs Bottle tops (The ones that you pull the ring to open the bottle)
  • Sharp Blade of some sort

Once you have all of your equipment ready and your two bottle tops, you need to flatten them out like so:

Flattened Bottle Tops

Now mark out the area to cut. The opening in the radio is XXX mm wide, so ruler a few lines ready to cut.

Ready to cut

Now get your sharp knife, and score the lines. Repeat until cut.


Either rip, or cut off the left over side bits, and make sure it fits in the radio release ports.


Now we need to shape the end of the metal to look like the actual release key. Just chop a triangle off the tip, I guessed the angle and it worked perfectly.

Nothing better than guesswork!
