    >Before proceeding, determine the type of mouse balls by examining
    >the underside of the mouse. Domestic balls will be larger and harder
    >than foreign balls. Ball removal procedures differ depending upon
    >the
    >manufacturer of the mouse. Foreign balls can be replaced using the
    >pop-off method. Domestic balls are replaced by using the twist-off
    >method.

    >handling can result in sudden discharge. Upon completion of ball
    >replacement, the mouse may be used immediately. It is
    >recommended that each person have a pair of spare balls for

    >and replacing these necessary items. Please keep in mind that a
