    Does anyone know how to remove the Icon Holder/Band on the Garage Rock? I'm talking about taking off the entire piece, not just the icon, as shown below. It looks like it slides onto the frame, and might be attached with double-stick tape; but I'm not really sure.

    Not sure how they are attached but I'd be curious to find out.

    either sticky tape or just popped in. They are making things less expensive, so adding anything to it to be extra secure would cut into profit

    The icons are definitely double-stick-taped to the band piece. They slip and slide around with just a little bit of pressure; which is not too reassuring, actually.

    I still can't figure out how the band comes out though. I don't think they slide out, because the faux bolt indents would prevent them from moving. But they don't want to lift up either. I might have to try the hot water method and see if that works.

    They might just be embedded into the frame.

    That's what I was thinking. Is it all one piece just painted to look like it's an addition?

    I think they are a part of the arm from what I have seen.

    The band pulls up a little, if you grab the edges, but I'm too afraid to pull up too hard. The metal looks like it's pretty thin, and I'm worried it will bend. Hopefully someone who works at Oakley will chime in and let us know what the deal is with these things.
