I got this from VP 2 weeks ago. It worked when I first got it, maybe one or two tries but after that and now, the hook doesn't open the tag. I have tried on other tags as well.
I did follow instructions on the jpg that was included but it doesn't make too much sense and I can't figure it out for some reason. Am i pressing too hard or something? I followed the directions exactly as stated...
Sometimes you will get it in one shot sometimes it will take a bit longer and more tries to get it. Trust me theres time where you will stand there for 10 minutes to try and pop it out. Just be careful and be patient.
I just bought a v2 hook a few days ago and it arrived today. Took 10 minutes to figure how exactly how to do it. Not sure if your using the same one but basically you want to slide it in against the outside edge. Push a little harder and you should hear a pop sound and those needles come right out.
It's not hard guys, when rob first got his he messed with it a lot and it took a bit to learn and on his first trips he took about a minute to 2 on a tag. Now he is a pro unlocks it in under 5 seconds on first try. Like shady lady says its all In the angle.
If you still can not get it,
the same thing happened to me I got it off the first time no problem and then I took the tag off and then reattached the pin. When you push the pin in with little to nothing in between it is hard to removed especially if new. I solved this by kinda sticking a knife in the crackbetween the tag and pin and put the hook in while I pryed it out and it finally popped out. After I learned it is alot easier to not stick it in the deepest it can go
