I used a metal kebab skewer that we no longer use for food. It may be OK for food, but it was cheap enough that I am not interested in trying it. Anyway, I heated it in the gas flame of my stove and stuck it on the dot that was once the slender post. I found it took a little practice - just the right amount of heat and the right amount of time. Then it just pops off.
My way is not nearly as nice-sounding at our3boys' ... I just take a hammer to it. Really. I smash it up a few times (of course, I only do this on our concrete floor in the laundry room.. I wouldn't do it anywhere else!) and it will come off... but you will be left with a hole if you're trying to move the snap quite a ways.... that will happen with any poly resin snap holes.

Yes, ice pic - that is what people usually use who do the "heated poker" method. I just did not have an ice pic and did not want to go buy one. It would have taken me 2 hours at the store and cost me $100.
