Hmmmm... ;D
Well in that case there may be a few new customs comming out soon... ;)

I just thought,
Couldn't you heat the arm before removing the hand,
And pull it out, widening the hole a little, but fix it when the new hand is in place?

I've done that additional process too, WoT! One word of caution is use the exact same process by keeping the hand & forearm areas cool to prevent softening the wrong sections by using the cool wet linens! You can also adjust the heating of the plastic by distance of the hair dryer to the plastic surface. BE VERY CAREFUL, too close & results may prove disastrous!

My wife's hair dryer is in use a lot, but not for beauty purposes ;)!

But beauty is in the eye of the beholder!  :D  :wave:

 :wave: Hello,

i explain you here with some pictures a technique I use myself to remove correctly a hands of Klickys.

Use preferences recent figures, the plastic is more flexible than the old. You can too also warm up before the arm with a source of hot air, like hair dryer, heat gun, radiator, etc...

Important: Be sure that the new hands are the same as those to replace, because a part that enters in the arm is sometime different (Bigger, smaller, longer, shorter).

The rest follows with the pictures because it is sometimes better than write too much and my english is a little poor.

Friendly ;)
TJ

What I did was take a pair of pliers and left the body assembled to pull the unwanted hands out of the wanted arms. Then the hands I wanted to keep I cut out of the arms (taking care of course not to cut the hands themselves.
Not every one of these has come out right; More than a few have been loose. It’s kind of a crap shoot.
Good luck to you.
If I’m jealous, you did SOMETHING right. Keep it up. :D
