Hi, willch11. Sorry to read about the difficulties you're having. You can remove the detachable base by pulling it down. For reference, you can check this video timestamp: 0:56 seconds. Hope this helps.

This problem was recognized as a complaint by DJI.  I had to send the Pocket 2 in completely and now I get a new one.  Obviously this is a general problem and with the new Pocket it will work just as badly!  The options mentioned here are very helpful.  Instead of the exchange, DJI should have given such tips!

The problem is the lack of grip, so the wise thing to do is to find a proper grip like screwing on a small tripod and pull with the tripod. Alternatively, use a knife blade with care  and pry it off. The retention clips are at both sides. Good luck.If you have any problems removing the Do-It-All handle after it's on try the tip I posted in this forum☺️

Carry a small piece of that rubber mesh stuff which is sold for lining drawers and trays to stop stuff slipping around.  That helps to get a good grip.  Someone also suggested putting the device in the case to make it easier to get a good grip on it without risk of damage - gripping or knocking the gimbal head would not be a good idea!

I just came across this in the P2 FAQs (which are well worth skimming over) -

"Remove the base by pulling down and replace it with the provided DJI Pocket 2 Tripod Mount (1/4”).
Hold Pocket 2 by the handle horizontally with the screen facing upward. To detach, hold Pocket 2 by the handle and pull the base vertically towards the ground. If you hold the gimbal upright and pull the base directly, it may not be detached.
The purpose of such a design is to fix the tripod mount or any other accessories firmly."

In other words, you kind of bend it off.

This is the best method I have found. Just attach it to the tripod and pull the life out of it! Jeez my hands got numb for an hour of going crazy over this base! Thank you for this tip!

You saved my finger nails and my day. I had been struggling with is for days and was about to give up and almost accepted the idea that I´d never tale the fricking base out.

I’ve lost the attachment with the tripod mount. Is there somewhere I can order a replacement?
