How do you remove a vandal proof tap handle?

Another alternative to remove the vandal proof tap handle is to use an old metal fork and bend up two of the prongs about 2mm and set to the needed spacing. If this does not work you can try to undo the threaded ring by using a small screwdriver as a chisel in the slots and unscrew it by gently tapping it loose.
