    Asked them already they told me they cannot do it.

    If I can remove in < 10mins, how much are you willing to pay?

    Hehehe... All I can say is: "I wish you all the best!"
    If you have access to some sort of bench vice, that would be really helpful. That, and a powerful hair dryer.

    Any ideas on how to remove it? I tried alcohol already.

    Go to Sim Lim Tower and buy a gas blower that uses lighter fluid.

    Then heat up the area to remove the threadlocker.

    Its a month liao, but i guess i will still post anyway.

    Recently, I removed my QR clamp from both my g20 and c10. Its possible but I used alot of strength. My tip here is dun use the free hex key that comes with the ball head. Make my hand pain only. Ensure that the ball is locked properly else the ball head will turn while u try to unscrew it. Buy a Hex key with grip. I had one from HomeFix.

    Once you removed it, u will see white powder on the screw, looks like from glue/epoxy and loctite..
