Posted:What's the best way to get the end caps off of a pair of glowbug poi? I want to get the caps off so I can shorten the cord handles, and this will also be good to know when the batteries need changing. I don't want to damage the caps by using pointy objects to try and get them off.

Any suggestions? I wish these things just screwed off, it would make life alot easier.

Posted:Heat them up a bit. If the are warmer they come off a lot easier.
You could even try a hair dryer.
I will pass on your suggestion to the manufacturer.
