I undid the hex bolts on an end cap, what now ::face palm::

(Carl Chatfield) #1


I just got my BlueROV today, and then misinterpreted the very first instruction, to open the battery enclosure, as undo the hex bolts. I’m feeling pretty dumb about that.

I’ve bolted it back together, but I’m wondering if there’s anything special I should do. It looks to me as though there may have been some blue thread locker on the bottom of the screws, however I’m not sure since I never took the screws all the way out. I also found the water tight enclosure tutorial video, but didn’t see any thread locker used.

I guess I’ll find out for sure once I test the seal :slight_smile:

Thank you.

It’s just threadlocker just put a drop on the tip of the bolts. The seal will probably hold but will get loose over time without threadlocker.

Hi Carl,

No problem you can just screw it closed again. Make sure to tighten the screws evenly in a star pattern to ensure even pressure on the face seal o-ring. You can add some thread-locker to the screws as well the prevent them from working lose over long term use.
