I am trying to disassemble an IKEA desk, and need to get the cam locks off and out to take the desk apart. The issue is not prying them out, it's turning them to get them unlocked.
Most of them turned 180 degrees smoothly, from locked to unlocked, as they should.
There are only 2 cam locks left in the desk that just won't turn at all. Something is resisting the turn completely, it's jammed.
I used a Phillip's head and a flat head screwdriver, put in as much strength as possible, tried manouvering the boards (that the locks keep together) to get the bolts into a better position? Even tried an impact screwdriver, but stopped that quickly, as something was still resiting the motion.
As you can see I got desperate, now I'm out of ideas for how to unlock these cam locks. Any suggestions?
