PUT ON YOUR SAFETY GOGGLES
Use the reciprocating (rotating) saw* to remove the handle on your left when you are looking at the back of the cooler.
Secure the cooler before you begin sawing.
Position the reciprocating saw against on of the inside edges of the cooler handle. always keep the blade facing outward from your body, cutting out and away
Making sure to keep the blade flat against the cooler to avoid cutting into the shelter wall, slowly move the saw towards the outside edge.
Repeat for the other side of the handle.
*If you do not have access to, or feel comfortable enough with the electric saw, you can substitute a hand saw or chisel for the reciprocating saw.
