3 steps
  1. Removing the back cover

    1. The back of the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge’s enclosure is glued firmly in place. To detach it, you have to constantly heat it with a heat gun so the glue will soften. Then you have to insert a plastic pick into the gap between the frame and the glass to detach the adhesive.
    2. The gap between the aluminum frame and the glass is very small. We recommend that you use a very flat, sturdy object to get between them.
    3. Carefully lift the back cover while using a suction cup.
    4. As soon as a little gap opens up, use the plastic pick to avoid damaging the aluminum.
  2. Inserting the pick

    1. You should only insert the pick about two or three millimeters between the back cover and the frame to prevent damage inside the enclosure.
      The back cover is painted on the inside. Remove any adhesive residue carefully to avoid scratches or cracks.
    2. The back cover is glued to the entire outer edge of the Galaxy S6 Edge. Move the pick once around the entire phone.
    3. Once you’ve detached all the glue, you can carefully lift the back cover.
  3. Attaching the back cover
