I need to disassemble an exercise machine that used "Push Nuts" like
these. Instructions say they need tool for removal, and are not
re-usable. It appears HD stocks them (see link below)
Is there a special tool for removal ??
Or what is best alternative, prying, cutting, what ??
They are sometimes re-usable if you get them off w/o destroying them
if you can the best way is to bang the part being held from the back
side with a hammer.
if you can't do that then pliers or a screwdriver; they break apart
This is a woman's job. Just find a woman who likes to push guys nuts.
Most women want men who have push button nuts. They want to be able to
push the man's nuts and get him to do whatever she wants at the moment.
That could be anything from providing her with sex, taking out the
garbage, buying her an expensive diamond ring, or building her a new
kitchen. In other words, get your wife to do this job.

Here's the answer... takes but a few seconds and it is off. All you need is a
pair of tile snips, a bit of a squeeze and it's off and there is no damage to
the nut. Did it the other night and worked like a charm.

All you need is a pair of tile snips. Just squeeze the push nut and off it
comes ... and no need to replace the nut as there is no damage to it. Easy!
