From time to time the clip on the PIVOT case may need to be replaced. This PIVOT clip replacement guide will walk you through the process. Before beginning any clip replacement procedure, please ensure you have a compatible PIVOT Clip Kit to match your case. It is not compatible with older versions of cases, which do not feature the Hinge Pin and Hinge Cap. If you have any questions about the clip kit compatibility, please contact PIVOT customer support at https://pivotcase.com/contact/
Remove Hinge Clip
a) Remove device. Follow instructions on pivotcase.com for your case and device type.
b) The suggested tool for removing the clip is a pair of needle-nose pliers or similar tool. Remove the hinge cap using blunt end of pliers’ nose and mild leverage to pry the small hinge cap off. There is a small ledge on the edge of the cap for this purpose.
Remove Hinge and Clip
