X-7 Low Profile Hopper slightly modified///quick release

I think it's a little hard to open X-7 Low Profile Hopper so I did this trigger-like modification to open it in no time.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
To make this mod first you should cut it out of carton and play with it. Then duplicate one out of plastic. You need to work with left half of X-7 hopper.



---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Make quick release trigger. I used piece of plastic 4mm thick which I found in my father's garage.



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Now you can start working on left half of x-7 hopper and cut out space for quick release trigger. Same thickness as our quick release trigger.


Red arrows mark stopping points for release trigger which limit it's range of motion and make it possible for lid to close without touching trigger again and to keep trigger from going inside hopper.



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
You may need to file off lid's walls from the inside to make it easier to open where marked by red. Don't worry lid still won't open accidentally.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
And last but important. You need to make some kind of metal insert for the trigger (if made out of plastic) to prevent stock hopper's screw (which holds quick release trigger) from cutting in. I made one out of car charger tip.

Re: X-7 Low Profile Hopper slightly modified///quick release

very cool indeed! I always thought it'd be neat if someone made a hopper lid open like a Dye pod lock lid.
