Having spent a good bit of time trying to get some out and not damage them I can totally recommend getting a peg spanner.
I bought the Park Tools one (I'll check the colour it's either red or blue)

Also drop some acetone(propanone) if you don't have any then see if you have nail varnish remover.
It remove the bonding agent used when putting them in (or should have been used, mine had it)
Also it's amazing how much easier the proper tool was than bent spokes, crafted spanners and bars, circlip pliers....

Came out easy.

Oh and the instruction (and the tool colour, pin diameter) is in the archive under syncros instructions.

Well worth 7 quid for the tool when you see how much the things sell for and I can now use it for other things I had avoided buying the tool for.

I'll just point you to this, which is why I know Acetone works. I used it and they where much easier to get off along with the proper tool.
