You are watching: How to safely break a tv tube

It's pretty simple really thou

In the 2nd picture post you can an alert the black rubber suction cup favor item. Girlfriend will require to slowly pry increase on the it's sides. As soon as removed this will give you a feet in one of the political parties making it simpler to eliminate the backing. Simply don't take it to lot if you desire to have the ability to reattach the screen

Precaution: friend will desire to carry out this on a tarp or disposable sheet of some type as there will certainly be a lot of glass and glass shards by finish.

For what you room wanting this for thou, you can just desire to to buy a slim sheet of clean Acrylic sheet (home depot or lowes) and heat it over the tv display to offer it the shape and also screw that in instead you can even get spray paint to make it look the same

(Edit: BTW following time you might want to write-up this in DIY or Cosplay or something)

We offered to perform this all the moment in electronics class in high school. Execute this at your own risk. The correct way to eliminate the vacuum is to closely break the glass at the really back. Use pliers and also squeeze the nipple till it breaks which allows air right into the tube/releases the vacuum. After ~ this is excellent you can safely use a hammer come break off the slim glass back of the tube. Note1: once the nipple breaks the air rushes in and usually disturbs the coating ~ above the within of the former of the tube so if you desire the coating to remain, as much I am aware, you're hooped. Note2: The glass is about 1 customs thick and really heavy for this reason balancing the rig when you gain it back together is walk to it is in a problem. I would imply you acquire a item of plexi and cut it to fit as someone else has actually suggested.
