Dynamite, works every time

Or you could google aegis hub guard and the profile site will pop up with instructions on it....took me like 2 seconds to find

I reccamend the dynamite though makes things more interesting

You could try the hammer out the axle method if you've had experience with press-fit axle hardware on female hubs.

Put the axle bolt in one side of the axle (at least 1/3 of the way in) & tap the bolt lightly with a hammer until the axle pops through the hub. This will get one guard off, then for the other one you can either put the edges of the guard on something where you can tap the axle straight though it to get the guard off, or tap the axle back into the hub and tap the axle out the other way, and the guard will come off then. Be careful though when doing so, not for the guard's sake but for the bearings & axle bolts
