Replaced a few dozen of those over the years. Some would just fall off when the screws were removed; others required a little 'leverage' by way of a screwdriver/pry bar
Developed a pretty good system for applying Shoe Goo to the contact points to cut down on squeaks and vibration. We had rolls of butt cap stickers on hand. The good old days.
We actually requested 'handle-less' frames so we could fashion the proper grip size by adding the appropriate handle. Not a bad idea when stock ran low; but Head nixed our 'flexible' approach.
