At Facebook Vanderhall Owner's Forum, Open Roads noted knob has loctite. Suggested strap wrench  or padded vice grip/channel lock and a bit of muscle. Use blue loctitie to resecure.

Haven't done it, but I'm pretty sure just the knob. Might need those padded vice grips on the stem!

If you're planning on doing this yourself, please consider taking pictures of the process and writing up a short "How To" in the Tutorials & DIY section!

Heat is the easy answer,  use a propane torch to heat the shaft this in turn releases the locktite.
