Mine have the hex base.
I have had success using vice grips to unscrew post like that by just grabbing the rubber. Really have to crank it down though.
Quoted from RyanStl:
Taylor I think we are looking at different parts. I put on the cliffy's that slides in under the optos. My problem is the playfield protector that fits under the bumper posts that hold down the shroud that surrounds the time expander. The one just above the Doctor 7 light. Thanks for sticking with me.
The post towards the front of the playfield.
I was showing you this pic because those post thread into tnuts. It sounds like yours have nuts.
Sorry I was misunderstanding which post you were taking about. Your talking about the post on the main playfield. You should just be able to undo the nuts and take out post. If they are tight I'd just tap it with a rubber mallet to loosen it up.
