i think the studs are a 2 part product.
the threaded part seems to run from the very top all the way to the end of the 
the hex drive and body appear to be a separate part that is spin riveted around 
the threaded part.
hammering on one part may cause them to separate into 2 pieces. without 
hammering i have one on my car that has separated and will not come out. ill 
need to cut it out with the dremmel

guessing a little here on your intentions...
a pointed 'nail punch' if you want to slightly expand the portion (from behind) 
that goes into the screw down bracket - or a small socket, say 8mm or 3/16" if 
you want to hit the edges around the portion of stud protruding from underside 
of the screw-down bracket. In either case gonna need to be careful to hold the 
peg securely (on the sides and at the pointed end) so as not to damage them.. 
(maybe drill a shallow hole in hardwood to insert the peg so you can bang away 
on other end without damaging pointy end)

Can anyone recommend a tool, that is not a ball-peen hammer, for peening the 
ends of lift-a-dot studs?
