    I'm repairnig another ancient Aiwa AD6900 cassette unit.
    It would make access to the deck much easier if I could remove the 3 sockets
    that protrude
    through the front plate. These are locked into the subchassis , the barrel
    (that the plug passes through)
    pokes through holes in a steel plate and then stout plastic rings pushed
    the barrels to lock in place. Hot air gun to soften the plastic to remove ?
    Any attempt to prize off these barrels would be obvious as they protrude out
    the front plate.

    Retaining rings are thick black plastic like the back rings of LED clips but
    scaled up to go over the brass barrel of the socket , rather than normal
    threaded bush, and this ring then sits under a lip around this barrel
    after being forced over the lip so firmly in place. Although with fair
    amount of finger force you can rotate the whole socket in the hole in the
    thin steel chassis plate .

    Are you sure it`s not a bayonet fitting? There is a pretty common jack
    socket used on many mixing desks so designed.
