    that's the method I use

    Doesn't take long . Just heat up the nipple and pull it out. I think thats the only way.

    push nipple removal

    if you need to do a lot of them than go to an autobody parts store and purchase a "slide hammer " you can make a hook for the end and out pops the nipple mike

    Cast Iron Baseboard Rad push nipple removal

    Does anyone know of a tool or faster way of removing the push nipples from the cast rads besides heating up the rad with a torch and grabbing with a vise grips. I'm trying to refit some rads together but the existing rads have either one or two nipples installed in same spot as the rads I'm fitting in. I was hopping not to trash them or replacing them. Thanks
