Question about Camping, Backpacking & Hiking
You need to twist the black bulb end off in the direction of the arrow labeled open. The best way I found was to place the yellow end between my legs to hold it in place.

I already buy the battery but how to fix it is hard for me to fix.

The black globe end is threaded, so firmly (but gently) twist in the direction of the arrow indicator marked 'OPEN' on its side, then (depending on the model of torch) carefully unhook the battery/switch connector (a removable black plastic part which sits between the globe and the battery) from the yellow compartment - insert any 6-volt battery (Duracell is recommended for frequent use in lanterns and large flashlights and generally lasts longer than regular batteries but you can use any 6-volt battery) - put the battery into the body with the spring terminals facing the open front end to allow connection to the strip on the back of the switch connector. Once the battery is seated, re-fit the battery/switch connector - with the button facing toward the top so it mates with the button, then simply screw the front globe face back on. If you have done everything correctly, and assuming the battery is fresh and the globe is OK, the torch should work. It is a lot easier to do in practice than explain in print.
