|Alright, I just got a set of yellow lenses for the overcast days ahead and I am trying to get the current lenses out of my RP Tayo's.
Now I might not be too bright but I have no idea which way to pull them to pop them out. Everything I have tried makes me feel like I am going to break the frames.
If anyone could clue me in either by discription or direction to some website info I (and my frames) would appreicate it.
P.S. Think I had no need for the owners information, I threw it out shortly after purchase. Is there a PDF version somewhere out there?

|If it's anything like the Kerosenes, you push down on the middle of the frame and pull up on the sides and they pop right out.|

|Had a pair of Tayo's but never took the lenses out. I'd just call Rudy; they've been very helpful with problems in the past.|

|Grip the bottom of the lens half way along and tease the bottom of the frame away with the other hand - work your way along the edge to the nose bridge to release the bottom corner - the lens should then pop out quite easily. Grip the lens with a soft cloth to prevent scratching. I've just done it here and now with my own glasses - no problem.|

|I have RX Graal FYOLs from In-Spex. They arrive, first thing I try is to swap out the lenses. I can't. I call In-Spex, the conversation went something like this:
Me: I'm trying to pop the lense out and it feels like I'm gonna snap the thing in two.
Jim: You can't break it, push on it.
Me: I am pushing, it's gonna break.
Jim: It won't break.
Me: It's gonna snap!!!
Jim: It won't snap!! It's supposed to be really locked in there that's what prevents unintentionally disengagement.
Me: I tell ya,....I'm gonna break it!!!!
Jim: If you break em, I'll send you a new pair. Now....Don't be a WUSS push it out.
----picture me pushing so hard I'm sure the frames gonna fold-----
Me: Hey!!! whatta you know it poped right out.
Jim: Great, enjoy the glasses.
So, your experience is completely normal, I can now swap out with ease.
