Removal:
Take a thin screwdriver or a dull awl and push in the center of the plastic pop rivet. This will allow the rivet to be removed easily.

Reinsertion:
Push the small center pin through the rivet to the top (don't remove it, but it should be sticking out of the head of the pop rivet). Push the rivet back in the hole and then press the center pin into the rivet to lock it back in place
