    That's funny my first one came out just like the video, you 2nd and 3rd not so much. I found if I use a large paint stick to stand on and a thick rod to go in the fitting and pry it comes out so easy after heating for 10 minutes. The paint stick is key, put all the right pressure in the right place.

    Man, I wish I'd thought about that technique! That right there is money!!! My size 12 feet were the issue, LOL. Trying to get the edge of a pair of size 12 dress shoes to hold down a 1 mm black ring, then use the other size 12 to push over the 1" fitting, while still holding down the little black ring. It was definitely a missed opportunity for some America's Funniest Home Video.
