After coming up with a few that those who don't know about my sense of humor
would take seriously, if you're certain you're going to lose the knobs
anyway, I might be tempted to just remove the plastic entirely and shoot
some PB Blaster down from the other end.  If this doesn't work, there's the
wedge and pin punch approach but that's kind of drastic and I'm sure that
others here have far more gentle means.

Note to self: Need more henchmen, good ones this time.  Also, start
auditions for new female lab assistant.
