    Remove pouch snaphooks?

    On the TB organiser pouch page it says, ".. plastic snaphook on the pouch or break it off."

    I feel a bit silly, but I've never understood if this means permanently break it if, or take it off and put it back later. It seems like it could be pried off the ball part, but I'm not sure. Can anyone advise?

    I'd like to remove a few snap hooks but I'm not sure about never putting them back!

    Hmmm the ones I have removed I went for permanently. But now that you mention it I am not sure if that was nessesary. They would at some point have to pot the snappy part on the bally part so maybe there is a way to ory that of in a non-permanent way.

    Interesting question, I will experiment with this a bit.

      My unrelated concern is whether I will prematurely break the snaphooks if I keep changing pouches between bags ? Or are they best clipped on and left untouched as much as possible ? The snaphooks seem quite delicate but perhaps appearances are deceiving.

        I remove my keys from the snaphooks all the time, have been for about a year now, they're fine. They seem quite robust.

            Oh they are quite robust. Like Kshni I open and close them all the time and the one for my carkey is in use constantly for nearly two years now.

              Yup, you can do it. Unless you pry the section holding the remove the ball/hook part open so hard that you deform the plastic, you can snap the ball back in with a bit (or is it a lot :S) of effort. Just pry the 2 ball holding sections apart enough for you to slip the ball back in. I did it with one of my pouches a while back after realising I preferred having the snap-hook.

                After about three years of using my key strap on my keys the snap hook gave out. Maybe I was too rough with it, but at least I have a back up. Now to figure out which dyneema one I want to replace it with NWS or steel.

                  Thanks everyone! I will give it a try as I'd like a couple of mt pouches without hooks. At least for now.
