Make button guards stop laser pointers from turning on

Make button guards

Just thought I'd show you a little hack I did to make things work better. I have a couple of laser pointers that I use for my work building and installing scenery for a theater. The buttons stuck out too far and were constantly being pressed when in my bag, resulting in a lot of wasted batteries. So I used some sugru to build up the area around the buttons, creating a little shroud to protect them. Sugru has enough "give" that I can still push the buttons when I want to use them, but is stiff enough to keep them from being randomly activated. No more wasted batteries! Fred, USA
