Good afternoon, and welcome to the Technical section in JustAnswer, an independent paid question and answer platform that matches customers' questions to experts in various skills. My name is ***** ***** I'll be happy to help you today.

Find the grippiest rubber glove that you have available - like a washing up glove. Make sure it's thoroughly dry, and grip the chrome shroud tightly and turn it anticlockwise while rapping it with the handle of a screwdriver. The rapping should be enough of an impact to release the shroud and get it turning.

If this doesn't answer your question, please come back to me.
