Not working...but I have an idea. I am going to take a measurement with a caliper of the clip at it's widest. Then I am going to design a tube of wood/hard solid plastic about 1/2-1 inch thick and drill a hole in it a little smaller than widest part of clip. Then, saw an access channel in to the tube so I can insert it onto the throttle cable above the clip, and slowly press it on to the clip forcing it to close on all sides at same time. Once it closes to the correct size, it should slip off the pedal... I hope! I may make a few of them of varies sizes to cover all bases. I will send you photos of completed tool when I am done, if you are interested. It would make removing these clips much easier.
