It's just a plastic pipe with a rim (like the other end) pushed into a rubber grommet.

Put a screw or hook up the middle and pull it out.

:agree: probably the grommet has gone hard as rock and won't let it go so needs cutting off and replacing... sharp chisel and big hammer job .. Wham bang, job done ... :lol:
