Pull them through the backside using a nail nippers. You can buy a nail nipper at nearly any hardware store (not a toe nail nipper). Sometimes they are called hoof nippers or racetrack nippers. To prevent maring as you apply leverage to the nipper use a piece of 1/4” scrap hardboard under the nipper. They’ll come out fairly easily. It takes a little practice so you don’t clip them off, but one you get it you’ll move right along.
