    Maybe you can gently use a pointed "pick" and pry each end one at a time. It is speciality tool, so you may not have one. Maybe the point on a fork might do the trick. Hope this helps.

    I had the same issue with a racket today. Getting those staples out is tuff. I took a small screw driver that would fit inside the staple and put it between the butt cap and pallet in line with the staple. Hammered it in until the screwdriver pushed the butt cap and staple up. Pull the screwdriver out and use it to pry the staple out.
