Popping off Vintage Speedster nipple hubcap

Hi again, one of my hubcaps is rusting and I am wanting to replace it with a So Cal one.  Can someone give me simple to follow instructions on how to pop it off.  I was told by using a hanger but not sure about how to do this.  A video would be great!

 

Thanks Russ

 You can also use an L-shaped Allen key and a pair pliers. Although not very gracious, the cap will usually pull off the wheel by putting the short end of the Allen key into one of the holes on the hubcap and yanking it off by holding the longer end of the Allen key with the pliers. That’s the way I’ve always done it, until I found the proper tool hidden up front in the trunk, and thought, oh so that’s what that’s for. LOL
