The right tool for the job...
Some owners will find occasion to remove the Alpha driver, most will not.
The driver is precision press-fit into the mounting sleeve...it's held in by friction. Insert the 90 degree point of this tool into the "driver removal notch" and lever the driver out of its seat.
It is possible to damage the driver or the lip of the flashlight head if you use too much force, so please be careful. This kind of damage is not covered under warranty. If you break the driver you can install a new one, but if you bend the actual light...it's toast.
