RE: [IP] Paradigm insulin pump

I just ordered a new one from MM. It was starting to break off on one
side.  Do you use a quarter or nickel to screw the battery top on?

 When screwing in the battery fastener screw sometimes it doesn't screw
properly because it does not catch properly.
 When that happens I unscrew it and very carefully re enter the screw.
If it is
in properly it will screw in fully. If it is not
 in properly, it will become tight before it is fully screwed in. Also
if it is
not started properly and tightens before it is fully seated, do not
force it in
at you might
damage the threads.  It's plastic and not as strong at metal.
