Default Oscilloscope probe question

I bought a pair of oscilloscope probes on Ebay from China.
They come with a hooking tip attached.

How do I remove the hooking tip ?

I didn't want to use any force, since if I break it, I must wait 3-4 weeks for another probe from China.

The plastic ends normally pull off but at that price, it may be moulded.
I use Hameg probes. They are exceptional but expensive.

Usually that part just pulls off, leaving a pin probe. The genuine Teks did.

Thanks guys. I pulled it just a bit harder than before, and lo and behold () it detached without breaking anything.

Really old Tek grey probes unscrewed. Had all kinds of options that would screw on ends.

My genuine Agilent probes are a bit crappy with regard to the hook tips, they keep falling off. It's gets annoying at quite an alarming speed.
