Hi, im unsure of the real term but in the manual there "e-rings". 4 of them hold the tail pitch fork onto the grips, and i have purchased a metal tail pitch fork and so need to remove them little "e-rings" to fit it and they look a little delcicate to get the pliers round them. Is there an easy way to remove?

Thanks
Andy

Use something with a sharp pointed end, best if it's magnetized. A little push will get it out.. can be re-inserted easily with fingers..

If you want to get fancy, you can buy "snap ring pliers". Some are made for E clips and snap rings. You can usually find various sizes at your local hardware store.

put a towel over it when you are doing this or it'll pop off and hide itself in the corner of your shop never to be seen again

Tink!
I have coined the game you speak of as "Tink". I usually go to the flying field and say I just finished a 1 hour game of "Tink". It usually gets a weird look and I get the inevitable question... "So what is Tink?"... People tend to think it is like Tetris or Minesweeper.

Definition: Tink - A game played when a small part is dropped from your hands or has shot itself from pliers or forceps to somewhere in the room you occupy. The sound heard when said part hits the floor or bounces off many walls is "Tink". Hence the name of the game you will play finding said small part. Usual gameplay will last for 20 minutes and could reach a timeframe of several months in some instances.

hahaha, thats funny alex... its usually my 3yr old daughter that gets on the workbench and start that game for me, sometimes it multiple game play, lol...

so if the name of the game is tink, what has to be said when you win? kinda like bingo, you would yelp out bingo once a winner. just a note too, dont happen by a hall of elderely folks playing bingo and yell out bingo for the fun of it, although funny, its just not nice, lol...

They are also called "Jesus clips" cause that's what you say when they flyaway never to be seen again.
I finally bought a good snap ring pliers with interchangeable points that can handle very small clips. They are also reversible to work on inside and outside clips.

I think about the hereafter. I go somewhere to get something, then wonder what I'm here after ?
