Adjusting Forsheda line snubber

Anyone have experience adjusting those wrap around rubber line snubbers? I have the snubbers on some 3/4 dock line and the snubber seems nearly impossible to move to a different location on the line because the line is so tightly stretched through the end feeds?

I used them at one dock some years back and found that if you use the line size recommended for a particular snubber it becomes jammed and unmovable.
My solution was to use line one or two sizes smaller than the recommended size or conversely use a snubber larger than the line you think is safe for the particular situation. My boat called for 1/2" line and after a while I used snubbers for 5/8' line and had no trouble (and the snubbers lasted longer)

sounds easy enough, but my current problem is moving the darn thing now that is on the line....the snubber was already on the lines when I purchased the boat.

Work at it with a marlinspike and needle nose pliers and a good deal of determination and you can work the line free of it.
