    How do you take the Dunlop Straplocks apart? I'm talking about the strap half with the clip that goes on? I can't seem to get it off. It's not permanent, is it?!
     
  2. Use a smallish flat head screw driver and pry away from the open end of the ring. It'll eventually fly off never to be seen again.

    Don't forget to gouge yourself with the screwdriver. :p

    (a very real possibility considering the operation)

    Removing the c-clip is like removing a c-clip on most other devices. Just carefully pry it away from the center shaft. Keep one finger on it while you do it and it can't fly away.

    What Ray said;)

    What I do is get two pairs of pliars and pull the c-clip away from the straplock.

    it to the strap. Patience is definitely a must at that time.
