    Thumbs down Oh dear!

    Morning, I use labret posts as earrings as I don't like the butterfly ones as I manage to catch them etc... I managed to get hold of some that had a smaller end to the post and wanted to change them today - my ears need a really good clean as well. I usually get in bit of a tizzy when I change them. So, I stayed relaxed and for love of money these will not undo. Well, I got one undone but, I have quite a few to do. I have tried a little piercing oil (which, I didn't really want to do) should they had been gunged up and also vinyl gloves (I have not got any rubber gloves at the mo). I still cannot get the balls off. Tried clamping with tweezers etc... I have to now admit I cannot cope with them. Could anyone one here say that the push type are any good? Are they cope-able?

    Sorry, to go on but, trying not to be upset. I think I will be going to my piercers sooner than I think. lol....... Are the push type easy to find online etc...? - Many thanks!

    Thank you Hazel. I am going to have to e-mail my piercer. I know they can order bits and bobs in.

    I started all this around 9.30am this morning and it has taken until now to finally change 4 Labret posts. How embarrassing! I didn't get into a tizzy (very glad) but, the swear box was quite full. I'm going to enquire about Neometal push in's type ones. I can't be doing with the palaver of it all - too much for me. (That is excellent Neometal is titanium.)

    Many thanks for your help and suggestion -yv-. I will be looking for some forcep pliers - I can't be doing with all the time it takes me to change them.
