Smile hood latch removal

I am a first time Jeep Wrangler owner and to be honest driving on the freeway has scared the crap out of me. The hood wave is crazy. So after reading some threads on here I am finding that I need to replace the rubber hood latches with some new ones. I have am going with the Daystar hood latch. My question is how do I get the old ones off? the new ones have a screw but the old ones are pins with heads on either end. Do I just use a hacksaw to cut them off and pray I don't hit the fender? Any tips are appreciated. Thanks.

If you look up that part on quadratec.com they have a pdf with the installation instructions. That was one of the first things I was going to do on my new wrangler but it didn't do the wind dance on the way home from the dealer and I got up to 75 on the expressway. I did have the dealer install the wind deflector but I didn't think it would make that kind of difference.
