How to Remove a Ring Without Cutting It

Last week I posted how to remove a tungsten carbide ring by destroying it. This week I will share a trick from Professor Simon Carley (2013), on how to remove a ring without cutting it. He does provide a few word of guidance if you are planning this route of ring removal:

  • Do not attempt this method if there is a wound to the finger;
  • Compression only works on soft tissue injuries;
  • Try this at your own risk, have an alternate means of removing the ring;
  • This will likely inflict some degree of pain on the patient, have an alternate removal plan available.
