    puke Cam Loc Grommet R&R

    Ok, forget I have been doing this forever, does ANYONE have a special tool or method to remove Camloc Grommet Snap Rings?

    If I ram another pick into my finger I'm just gonna lose it LOL

    You never have a second chance, to make a first impression

    I've never seen a tool for that, just a pick and/or tiny jewlers screwdrivers. Not fun.

    Not sure of a tool and you may have already seen this, but Skybolt has this removal sheet http://skybolt.com/wp-content/upload...l-fastener.pdf
    Also, on another forum site I found, someone suggested "What I found is that you need to grind down the forked part of the stud pliers so that they are thinner and can be inserted between the stud and the grommet. Not sure why Jeremy doesn't just have them manufactured that way, but it's not hard to do with the bench grinder. "
    Not sure if this helps (I know NOTHING!)

    They actually do make a tool, I have it in my box. I will grab the part number off of it and post it Friday. It can be made if you are handy with a lathe. I will post a picture of it as well.
