    if youy're talking about the triad, you see the little hole in the buttcap, stick a scissors in there and pry the butt cap off from there.

    ^^^ you have to take off the grip, which means you will need a new grip.

    The grip has to removed, the staples have to be extracted from the butt cap then you remove the but cap to get at the rattle. Unless you have a seen this done before, take it to a Shop where they do customization or take your time and don't force anything. It is very important to reattach the but cap securely .
