As I have done this fairly a couple of times I will tell you however take warning the all TVs space different and I will not take obligation if you get hurt.

You are watching: How to safely break a tv tube

It's pretty simple really thou

In the second picture posted you can notification the black rubber suction cup favor item. You will need to gradually pry up on the it's sides. Once removed this will offer you a hole in among the political parties making it less complicated to eliminate the backing. Simply don't take to much if you desire to be able to reattach the screen

Precaution: you will want to perform this ~ above a tarp or disposable paper of some type as there will certainly be a most glass and also glass shards by finish.

For what you space wanting this because that thou, you could just want to purchase a slim sheet of clean Acrylic sheet (home depot or lowes) and also heat it end the tv display to offer it the shape and screw the in rather you can also get spray repaint to make it look the same

(Edit: BTW following time you could want to write-up this in DIY or Cosplay or something)

We used to perform this all the time in electronics course in high school. Do this in ~ your very own risk. The correct means to remove the vacuum is to very closely break the glass at the really back. Use pliers and squeeze the nipple until it breaks which lets air right into the tube/releases the vacuum. ~ this is done you have the right to safely use a hammer come break turn off the slim glass ago of the tube. Note1: once the nipple division the air rushes in and also usually disturbs the coating on the inside of the former of the pipe so if you want the coating come remain, as far I am aware, you're hooped. Note2: The glass is around 1 inch thick and an extremely heavy for this reason balancing the rig once you acquire it ago together is walking to it is in a problem. Ns would imply you get a piece of plexi and also cut it to fit together someone else has actually suggested.
