Think they should just be pushed in! If you have a set of Danny Miller arrow pullers just grab the nock and pull and maybe twist

They are not glued in. Just pull them out. Maybe need some channel locks or adjustable pliers. Super simple

I cut the bent part off a wire coat hanger leaving a straight thin rod about 20" long. Then I unscrewed and removed the target tip and poked the nock out with the stiff wire rod. Poke it hard and it will come out easily enough. I just did it again Thursday afternoon to get ready for our Saturday opener.

I got a piece of 1/8 steel rod 24” long from Ace Hardware. Just insert the rod through the insert and one small tap on the rod and the nocks pop right out! Even works on glued in nocks too! Good luck!

I want to Thank everybody with their suggestions, what i ended up doing was taking the practice tip out and screwing it into the flat nok and grabbing it with channel loks very easy

I use nock pliers if they are the plastic ones, if they're the aluminum ones like I use I screw a field point in the nock and then just pull them out with pliers
