I have a Wahl oversize (Greek key band) pen that needs to have a new clip installed.  My question is, how is the inner cap removed?, is it a pullout from the inside, or is it attached to the outer cap end that might thread off with it? I have searched in vain for any such information.   Any help would be appreciated.   Bill in ontario.

The inner cap is press-fitted in place. Note that removal may not be easy, since the inner cap is a thick tube of hard rubber, which does not shrink with age, whereas most Deco Bands have outer caps of celluloid, which does shrink with age. It is very easy to break the cap under these conditions.
