Help with Proflexes

Need help to change ears on the Proflex, currently have rivets holding them, any idea how to pry them apart? I've tried many things, any help is welcome, thanks.

Im sorry to have to ask this... but have you checked the other side of them? Are you certain they arent screws because I have NEVER heard of someone using rivets for the ears.

Your only option as far as I know would be to drill the rivets out.

My flexes came with rivets, I was confused and I used them, I'm so screwed! They come together but are basically impossible to pry apart by hand they push into each other, I'm sure they have them on ans gear or something, they're meant to be used on flexes I think...

Usually the rivets are for attaching the chinstrap, I think drilling them out would be the best option.

If you are sure they are rivets, cut them with these


Or just leave them on until you really need to get them off.

Are they plastic? If so, they just snap apart. Some JT softears used to ship with these and ANS sells replacement ones.
