How do you get the factory glued in male quick release adapter off the ballast bags, I've heard of using a hair dryer, but have also heard that these can melt the plastic bag. any help???

Mine will unscrew by hand. It seems like every body else's have a glue/loc-tite on them.

tried the hair dryer. The bag got "sticky" so I stopped twisting the **** out of it. I thought about some type of solvent, but not sure what would give the glue a chance to loosen up and keep the bag intact.

I bought 550s for side v drive with factory quick release, upgraded to 750s for the rear and want to use the 550s with the tsuanami pump other places in the boat ie the front

I heated with a hair dryer and pushed hard to pop them off. That is how Fly High recommends removing them.
