How Remove These Tloc Hinge Pins
« on: April 28, 2017, 10:19 AM »
I just received a couple of Sys II Attic Lid systainers and want to swap the attic lid over to a Sys II Combi.  Both systainers have the hanger bracket style stiffener bars and I don't see the best way to safely remove the hinge pins.  What is the best way to do this without breaking anything?

Hi Dick,

Whenever I replace lids, I usually take a small screwdriver or a set of needle nosed pliers and put it right behind the pin and push towards the outside of the systainer. This picture might help illustrate this better.

To add to what Matt shared, we have videos showing how to swap the lids on our website's product page for the attic lid.
