How To Open XP Pinpointer Knob That Is Stuck

Recommended Posts

This morning I wanted to charge my XP MI-4 pinpointer but couldn't open the knob covering the charging plug. After many fruitless attempts, I contacted XP service at metaldetector.com. In an on-line chat, they suggested soaking the tip in warm water for 15 minutes, then to try twisting to open and even reversing directions a few times. After a few tries, this worked.

Hope this helps anyone else who might have this problem.

      Minelab PRO-FIND Series Pinpointers

      PRO-FIND Series Pinpointers assist in accurately locating targets at the point of extraction where a metal detector coil cannot fit.  This results in smaller holes, less environmental disruption and faster target recovery time.
      The PRO-FIND 15 offers essential core pinpointer features and is designed for simplicity and ease of use.  The PRO-FIND 35 provides premium level functionality in a fully waterproof design for the serious detectorist.  Both models use VLF transmission and incorporate Minelab’s unique Detector Interference Free (DIF) technology.

      I like the bright orange because I'm careless and seem to lose a half dozen every year.  I've already lost 2 of the green ones in the past month.   I've quit buying Pinpointers for the same reason.   I think I got these from Rob's Detectors.
