Great video with unusual but effective 2 handed technique for knob pulling.

He looks quite a young guy though, and not sure I could do it as quick as him.

He also pulled a bit hard, and was lucky he didn't make a mess of his rooflining.

I see - he's holding the shaft in his attempt to pull it off!

I thought he had pulled off more than he could handle, but his youth made it look so easy.

Don't know if I could master**** his technique, like you say Cuore it's that technique which got him out of a potential sticky situation.
:lol: Laugh and the whole world laughs with you.... or is that at you? :lol:

On the plus side, if you take your time, and providing the out come is what you hoped for, there is a satisfaction at the end when you've done it yourself. ;)

The problem there can be it's difficult to get a firm enough grip to have the desired effect. :eusa-whistle:

In the Uk we sometimes find that lubrication helps.

I think the European spec Knobs pull easier due to the warmer climate.

I think AEK is also very experienced in this area.

I asked a neighbour to help me pull mine in the end.

It was good of AEK to post a video.

I had heard that it sometimes helps you to pull it off if you watch a video :eusa-think:
