I just found 22 of these like the one in the middle, [better condition than one in photo] in with my battery record player. They are from the Rockies so they are like new even tho they are 50+ years old. Any one wanting one [for free of coarse], send a SASE to Jerry Richards, Box 6426, Navajo Dam, NM, USA 87419 & I'll send you one.

Can someone please tell me how to "pop" out those metal adapters?

I have several 7"ers that have these metal adapters and I can't seem to pop them out.

I believe that they are the first adapters invented, and while very interesting I would like them out of my records.

Is there a trick to getting them out?

Sort of a trick, I guess. I don't know, I just seem to be able to do it fairly effortlessly now, whereas in the beginning those things would drive me crazy trying to get them out. The way I do it is to use some light pressure near one of the "spokes", pressing in towards the record, which putting some pressure on the flip side on an opposing spoke. With trial and error, you'll get it, but one thing is for sure - it's not a brute force thing (we've all seen the results of that approach).

Thanks hrt!

It is very frustrating trying to get these popped out. I'll practice and apply your technique.

I never have a problem getting these out but it comes with a bit of practice.
What I do is bend the record, and while it is bent place my thumbs on the adaptor and apply enough pressure to force it to move up, down or sideways. Once it moves a touch, you're home.
You will be surprised at how much you can bend a record without snapping it, but don't go crazy! You'll see the fruits of this method quickly.

there was a previous thread on this where i cautioned folks to practice on junk records before attempting to take these out of something valuable. you can easily crack a 50s brittle 45.

I found another two, and combined all of them into this sticky.

Before popping a metal one, observe which way the flange of the spoke faces as noted in wurlitzer's photo.

What about the UK or other nations 45s wtih the molded-in small spindle hole held with three tabs? Is there a tool for clipping them out? Will a popped out 45 still play in a jukebox, or will the remnants of the tabs foul the playback on the juke?

On those UK's, I'd leave them in. I understand that removing them devalues the record.
