Corkscrew

Ask ScooterDad: Hello, my son Matthew just bought a MGP VX4 Nitro Extreme. When trying to put the bar extensions in, the bar ends were stuck. They are standard bar ends (like sort of rubber not metal). Please help!

I've used a corkscrew in the past to remove pesky plastic barends that won't come out. Another option is to use a large drillbit and drill into the center of the barend to either destroy it enough so that it collapses or to get it to bite so you can pull it out with the bit.
