There's a SERIOUS market for something like these for VARIO cases!
The replacement case bottom cost $114 and $142 (left and right) IIRC.
See "Case Bottom Replacement" Step 1 in my pictorial for an example of the same kind of broken TAB on the VARIOs.
It seems like it's always this
tab...shown in the picture.
OK...you sit around...make up a few "TAB REPAIR KITS" and pocket a few thousand dollars which can then be used to farkle!
