    Small flathead screwdriver works, I'm sure there is an e-clamp tool, but I have gotten them off for years with screwdrivers

    prepare for the thing to fly in any direction.
    so do it in a spot where if it does, you can find it easily

    to put it back on, just use a flat edge of small metal, liek the flat side of a straight screwdriver

    Duratrax makes a cool little tool to remove and insert e-clips.

    I was looking at buying one of these, but these are really easy to pop off with a screw driver and pop back on. These e-clips are not that stiff.

    Pro-tip: If you are afraid of loosing these during your first attempts of removal/install then put your hands, parts, and tools into a gallon clear freezer bag so when (if) the e-clip pops off it won't wind up lost on the garage floor.

    I thought they flung out in a time warp and wound up in the same place as missing socks from the dryer.

    good tip to keep it from flying so much, use a magnet on the joint.

    Tip for flying Eclips. I work with them, when convenient, in a big clear zip lock bag. Just stick the part in the bag and work inside it. They won't go far haha
