I have not removed one on purpose but I did tear one off on a dirt bank in the mountains. I just cleaned it and reinstalled as you would a new one. It worked great.

I replaced a front landing jack. The Snap Pad came off the old jack and went on the new jack without any difficulty.

What technique did you use to remove it? I was gifted a pair of red Anderson Jack Blocks, and I want to try them on the front legs but havenít taken the plunge to remove the snap pads. They wonít fit the Anderson block with them on.

Erica,

I would lube the top of the snap pad with soap and use a large pair of channel lock pliers to work a section of the pad off the edge of the foot. Then work your way around. Should not take much to do. Easy to put back on. Just need to pry it over the lip.

I don't think I had to do anything special. Just grabbed hold and pulled.

Just popped 4 off in 5 min. Got some hot soapy water, poured enough to fill the bowl used a large pair of channel lock players and got ahold and pulled down enough to stick a flat bar in and gently worked it around till it fell off, very easy.
Will clean them up and pop them on the new RV.

Raise your level up jack legs and then put pressure down on a corner with your foot. Comes right off!
