    I need to remove my shift knob.

    It screws on via threads.

    Is made of aluminum.

    Pretty sure the actual shifter is steel.

    Its been on for almost a year.

    It is secured in place with locktite.

    I've tried twisting it off many times with my hands.

    It will not budge.

    hmmm locktite... sorry, no clue how to get it off
    EDIT: Searched around and saw that people suggested heating the things with a torch or some sort of low-heat source (also a cig lighter) so i guess try that?

    Nvm. I just got it off.

    It was hard too.

    I found this thing I am going to call a "rubber strap wrench" and got it off.

    Problem solved.
