FREE KLICKY DISASSEMBLY!

Yes, you read it correctly!

This summer (May through August) GW will disassemble any and all klickys for FREE!

If you want your klickys disassembled, simply put them in a box with a post paid return label and GW will send ALL your little klickys back to you in pieces ... (hopefully "unbroken" pieces) ... :)

Anyone interested should make their reservations now!

All the best,
Richard

But it isn't that difficult!

I suggest to train it on an already disassembled new klicky...
There the head typically is kind of even more loose than before...

Just twirl around the elastic band as shown in the documentation and you will get a feeling for what to do to produce force onto the head...

I admit that I had some trouble to get out the head of a fat santa, because he is wearing a vest, so the band could not produce enough force to push the head out... I almost gave up, but then I realized that the head almost got out... ...tried it again... ...and voila - it popped out...

Maybe this helps?

Hello  All

The best advice i can give with so many different techniques available is to go with what works for you. I still use the original method posted by our very own Val and its worked for me time and time again. I have to admit however it usually ends up with loud thudding noises coming through the kitchen celing as i hit the klickie repeatedly on my bedroom floor :lol: :D. These are usually followed by shouts of pain as i clumsily pinch the skin of my hand in the legs ;D. I have to admit after all these years i am quite fond of this method and anything else just wouldn't be the same :wave:.

Kindest Regards  Tim

Wow! Thanks for all the advice and Val thanks for reposting you excellent tutorial (it's now savely saved and backed up!) I did manage w/o it but really wanted to check my hand postition on one troublesome fellow.

Meg, thanks also for the chubby klicky tip...I've a very non-cooperative Santa who needs to lose his britches.

Richard, thanks for the link to Sven's site, I'd not been there in some time.

Tim...your method sounds closest to mine only insert a few choice curse words for "shouts of pain." That seems to do the trick!  ;D

My dear grandma used to knit pot clothes...

I use them to dissassemble klickies, as the feet have a good hold in
the cloth and the figure wrapped in the remaining cloth cant hurt
my hands...

Good old grandma...

Does it help Meg? I've not gotten blisters but it does hurt once in awhile. I've taken to wearing a thin garden glove on "resistant" klickies as it has good traction.

Socrates...what's a pot cloth foot???  ???

Yes, it does help alot.
I always seem to remember how much the felt hurts after I try to crack open a resitant one.   ::)
