    Smile Pump shoe removal tip

    Thought I woild share this tip that has worked great for me a few times now:
    After you have got the shoe/pump plug ground to give you the 'nickel' clearance, and before you seal with your prefered sealant (4200 etc) spray the surfaces to be sealed with enamel paint, leave it dry for a few hours and seal as normal.
    Then if you need to remove later down the line, the shoe pulls off easily, and you just need to remove sealant- still a pain I know, but at least you don't need to stress/damgae your ski or shoe to get at it!

    Another good tip with removing 5200 is to take a metal paint scraper and heat it up with a torch... It cuts through 5200 like a hot knife through butter... DONT BREATH IT IN... It hurts
