Thumbs up Answered: Repairing the VEXnet Key

We recently had a VEXnet key's plastic covering come off. All we had at the time was duct tape. We decided to use it to tape it back together. It looks pretty bad right now but is still functional. Is this a risk for disqualification and/or inspection. If so, is there any way I can trade it for one when I get to the world championship (thinking the shipping would take too long)?

Re: Repairing the VEXnet Key

tutman96,

I do not think your robot could fail inspection because of such VEXnet Key.
A VEX Field Tech at Worlds can provide you with instructions on how to exchange your faulty item, if still under warranty.

Re: Repairing the VEXnet Key

I don't know if it is still under warranty. I received the key from my club. I do know however that we upgraded to VEXnet last year, so it might be under warranty.
