    should be a little slot on the buttcap, take a small flathead screwdriver and pry it open.

  3. Some don't have it. It seems Wilson doesn't put a trap-door cap on their rackets that have solid handles anyway. If you have a trap door, you'd know it.

    To add weights without removing the entire butt cap.

    I have never had a Head racquet that has a buttcap, but it isn't hard at all to take it off without damaging the handle or cap. You only need a pair of needle-nose pliers and a good staple gun to reapply.
