Caution re: end caps
on December 28, 2016
I was disappointed to open this, and find that the caps covering the ends were well attached to the bar, and required the used of a blunt instrument to break free. I am a carpenter and resorted to a hammer, fearing that I would only dent these fairly thin rings. Fortunately, they each broke free, using force, but one should know beforehand that such force will be required. Each flange has three "ears" on the outer edge, which apparently hold these covers in place before paint is applied. The paint becomes the real glue that holds them in place, which, to the manufacturer's credit, prevents the covers from sliding around and scratching up the paint on the bar.
I would imagine that some folks simply return these as unusable.
