    Snap-on case back cons

    Hi,

    I wanted to know snap-on case backs cons. Well, i know they
    are usually water resistant to a lower degree than a screw-down case back
    could be, but this is not so important for me. I just wanted to know is that all?
    Is there any pros for snap-on as compared to screw down backs?

    Snap on casebacks are often difficult to remove and difficult to install.

    They really aren't "less water resistant", it is just harder to get consistent seal compression at low over pressures. At higher over pressures, the case back free floats and actually increases seal pressure as the over pressure increases, thus sealing better, same concept as a compressor case.

    The main reason you don't see them that much is it is very difficult to remove the back without leaving some scratches on the case.
