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. sit around...make up a few "TAB REPAIR KITS" and pocket a few thousand dollars which can then be used to farkle!

Just sayin'.
