Model 4X - "EliteXRay"|

I love my Model 4X - "EliteXRay".
Now there is a problem though.
I was taking out the trash & it slipped out of my hands & took a fall on the driveway a few weeks ago.
I thought nothing of it because the outside didn't even get a scratch! Plus I remember your website saying to the effect of "throwing it up in the air 45 feet & landing on the concrete".
Tonight, while using it I noticed the case coming apart. I opened it, & to my dismay ALL FOUR plastic posts sheered off.
What can you/will you do to help me?
Thank You, Tom M.

Wow, sorry for the problem. The only way I can imagine this happened is if it was overtightened which is quite easy to do. Because the PC plastic will take a lot of abuse but not over a long period (stress) it easy to overtighten and think everything is OK. If you never opened it, it is possible that a torque setting on the screw drivers at the factory were incorrect. Anyway, it has a lifetime warranty. Just send it back and we will repair it.|

Thank You. I will send it in.
I dropped it only once. Never opened it either.
The only thing that I can think of that MIGHT be the problem is I've carry it in my front pants pocket every day. Could this explain it?
Thanks Again! Tom M.
