Great Question!!!! I was wondering this myself for a few months now.

I think a don't would be don't break the string trying to remove the ball.  ;)

Good point Ty, LOL

Some balls are easy to remove and others are wrapped around twice. If they are wrapped around twice you will simply need to crimp the ball and it will snap. Be careful not to crimp the wire from the string. Crimp it in both directions and it breaks into 4 pieces that can easily be removed.
