Hey Guys,

Are there any special tools to remove the knob caps pictured below, but without marring them?

I need to swap some handles and knobs around, and I prefer not to damage factory parts. Even though I am not even going to utilize them, I still like to keep it proper and not damage anodized parts. My inner reel tech just won't allow it.

I know Daiwa has a metal tool, but that just isn't kosher.

Is there another tool option?

Agreed, that appears to be it. Or you could use small snap ring or circlip pliers call them what you want. Or even a couple paperclips in a pinch, I know, I know, cheeseball but it can work...

That’s one variant of the tool. There’s another with slightly different spacing on two sets of those pegs that are on each side of the tool. There’s also a trick to eliminate marring the caps…..a plastic bag between the tool and the cap.
