Because the bore tolerances on couplings are so precise, installing or un-installing a servo coupling can be very difficult. In fact, machine builders have been known to wedge screw drivers in the coupling hubs to help open the bores up. Not only is this unsafe but the coupling and/or shafts can be damaged.
A better engineered solution is the EASY-Clamp system which is found on many GAM couplings. This system allows easy installation without the need for additional tools (screw drivers included). The EASY-Clamp pin is located just above the clamping bolt.
