Use an awl to get under the staples and slowly pry them out.

Hammer. I hammered the staples back on my Fxp Radical.

that's true, using the same staples right?

but they fit well again? holding strong?

Yeah, it's pretty easy. I pulled out the old staples with needle-nosed pliers, put the new butt cap on, and just used my trusty staple gun to put the new one on. I'm not crazy about putting the cap on with crazy glue, it would be a pain in the butt to get off later...
