Step 2: Removing The Valve

First, you need to remove the valve to make room for the jig to fit in.  It's best to depressurize the keg as much as possible with a tap. If you don't have a tap, you can also push on the valve with a screwdriver to release the pressure.  Warning: You may be covered in old beer if you try this as it will be shooting out the top.

There will be a retaining ring ( not pictured)  just under the upper lip of the opening.  You can pry this out with a small screwdriver or something similar. Grab it with a pair of pliers and get it out of that lip. 

Now it just needs to be twisted counter clockwise a few degrees to come right out.  Put your screwdriver on the tooth pictured and tap it with a hammer.  This should twist it slightly, allowing you to lift the valve right out.
