Heh, this is a very rubbish topic. I'm using lizzard skin charger grips, I just installed them tonight, my very first time using lock ons! I was wondering if anyone has any tips or if it's even possible to remove the black lock on clamps from the grips once you've already snapped them on!? I installed them in such a way, that 1 logo is facing the right way up and the 3 logos are facing down. Heh I know it doesn't matter but it'd like them to look as lovely as possible.

    Loosen them off, they should just spin round??

    If they're anything like all the other lockons I've used, use a butter knife (blunt-ish, for safety :wink:) or a flat, wide screwdriver and push it into the gap between the collar and the rubber then twist it to push the two apart.

    I use a butter knife on my Peaty's and Whyte Lock-Ons. Works a treat.
