    whats the best way to remove traction magnets without breaking off the tabs.

  • #2
    I have not had to remove a magnet in so long that I forget how I did it without breaking the tabs! Try holding the chassis with both hands. Flex the chassis by pressing upwards with your thumbs, if you get lucky the magnet should pop out.

      I usually use a small, flat head screwdriver on one end to first make sure it is pushed all the way to the other side, then I use it to pry the magnet up on that end. It usually pops out without breaking the tab. sometimes, though, the magnet is glued in or the tabs are too tight or whatever, and breaking the tab is unavoidable. Don't worry about it. Better to break the tab than to crack the chassis trying to flex it too much. Besides, if you need to put the magnet back in, a little shoe-goo is all you need.
