Only the driven element may be taken apart without removing rivets.
However, removing and replacing rivets is really easy. Just use a cordless
drill to remove, and a pop-rivet tool to replace. Use aluminum rivets
available from most hardware stores.

While removal of rivets isn't hard, I doubt that the generic hardware store aluminum rivets have the shear strength anywhere close to what is needed for Force-12 antennas.

I'd contact the manufacturer and see if I could get some replacements.
