question

How do you remove the center stud so I can put it on my slider?
Asked by: Matthew
I spoke with a Sachtler representative who told me that it is glued on, but is meant to be removed. They said to use a hot gun or blowdryer to get it nice and hot before removing it. I just removed mine and wanted to share before someone ends up damaging this unit trying to force it off the wrong way.
