Ok who has a slick trick for getting those damn annoying plastic push lock pins out without destroying them?
Seems like I have seen a set of pliers before to remove them easily, but cannot find them. Probably not calling them the right thing is why my searches have not yielded anything yet.

I went and bought a small box of extras to keep on hand.

I just use a 45 degree seal pick and it works great.

These will be on my list for my next trip to HF.
If you can find the flat blade tool, it is much nicer than the Harbor Freight pliers type. It works, but it is hard to get the pliers on the head of all of the push pins and the flat blade tool is much easier.....

I have the flat blade with the handle, makes life super simple. Its been years but got mine from auto zone or advance auto in the tool section. Have used the pliers, not nearly as fast and simple.
