I'm afraid of using my Holga 120N

My first Holga broke after only 4 uses. I bought a second one, but I haven't opened the box. Help?

I don’t know how it happened. I was taking a picture at nighttime. My camera was set to N. i was taking a picture with my cable release and the camera’s shutter mechanism somehow jammed.
my first Holga’s Bulb setting works fine but I don’t want just a bulb setting.
problem solved: i think i’m gonna turn it into a pinholga.

second problem: i bought a new Holga but i haven’t opened the box. i’m afraid of breaking it again. what should i do? ):

    Be strong. Take a deep breath. Open it and use it. If it breaks, you got 2 Pinholgas. So many things you can do if it breaks again!
