Default Can't get grease gun off zerk fitting

I went to grease the front end of the TJ up for the first time last night with my new supercrap grease gun, I put the end of the grease gun to the zerk fitting and it clipped on, but now I can't get it off. Is there a special way of getting them off or what? I've had to drive to work with the end still attached to the fitting.

cool story! They are tight when new, and you should be able to pull it down to the side and it should unclip - don't pull back on the fitting.

Most of the fittings on the grease gun hose unscrew for adjustment.

Is there a nut on the hose end of the fitting?

LOL I hope it wasn't a unit joint that it;s stuck on
Anyhow common prob - just use a screwdriver to pop it off.

I broke the nipples off two RE joints before I worked out that the fitting was adjustable

Yeah cheers guys, I too didn't realise the end was adjustable (it was hell tight to adjust), I spent bloody ages last night trying to get the prick off, yanking on it using screwdrivers and an awful lot of colourful language.

Yeah mate I had to drive to work with it on, had no other choice, she's my daily drive. I did cover it over with aluminium foil to keep the crap out though.
