The rubber band? I got my palm bruised purple when trying the han(d)s method.

Yeah, the han(d)s method is very gentle.

I now have blisters on my finger and thumb from using this method several times last night! The hand that you turn the klicky's head with can get very sore.

Wrap the head in a towel or something - you get a better grip and don't hurt your fingers.

Thanks for the guide, Bonnie.

I usually use the pliers method (but sometimes just hold the head of the klicky in one hand and the legs in the other at shoulder height and just pull them apart) and wrap masking tape around the head below the chin first.

Thanks for the review.  How are the legs assembled?  Is it possible to remove them without breaking?

I don't think so. They seem to be attached... I'll have another look at it and get back to you on it.

Just realized I never got back to you on this. Well, I've been looking at it. I can't figure out a way to get them off. It seems there must be a way, I just haven't figured it out yet. THe colored part that makes up the bottom of the suit is all one solid piece, and the two legs most likely snap into each other through the hole. So theoretically, you should be able to un-snap them. THe question is, will the legs snap in half before they snap apart. I'm thinking maybe if I can slide something between the swimsuit bottom and the leg, they could be pried apart. I need to get an extra that I don't mind sacrificing, in case I break it, and go to work on her.
