KAM snaps gone wrong :(

Can you take them back off if they've gone wrong? For some reason, one of the middle bits hasn't squashed centrally so it won't snap together now. I've tried taking the white plastic bit off the pliers and just using the metal rod to squash it a bit more but no joy.

Some people drill the centres out...I've had some success using the snap press to break the faulty snap by putting in in the press sideways then pressing it gently, but it can occasionally mark or pull the fabric.
