Is there a way to turn a pull solenoid into a push solenoid

I bought a powerful push solenoid for part of a Halloween project, but when it arrived, i found it was a mislabeled pull solenoid... Is there a way to convert one to the other?... otherwise, is there a source of 24vdc push solenoids with a 1/2" threaded mount that will ship overnight?

reversing polarity has no effect on the direction of pull (right hand rule)... I will probably have to use a lever, but I wanted to keep this as simple and compact as possible... I may just switch to a servo with a linear actuator.

there's these new things out called levers, I think one of them might do it if you can get hold of one

. As far as I know, you won't be able to change the action. . Since it's DC, it might be worth trying BB's idea of swapping polarity, but I doubt it will work. . If you have enough room, you can put a seesaw lever between the sol and whatever you're moving. . . I don't know of any place that can ship them to you overnight - but I don't keep up-to-date on such things. . I try calling local industrial electrical supply stores.

you could try reversing to input voltage polarity, but I don't know how the return spring (if it has one ??)) will affect it
