Question about Food Processors
I purchased a Farberware v-blade mandoline slicer. Unfortunately, I have not been able to use it because I can't figure out hot to attach the blade inserts onto the safety insert. Please help.
Remove the safety insert by pulling it towards the rear first , then insert the blade

I couldn't figure out how to remove the safety insert either. I tried using a hammer as Don from Texas suggested, but it didn't budge. I then examined how the slicer inserts were constructed and determined where the prongs were and how they should be removed. The back of the safety insert has a prong on either side. Grasp it at the end by the underside, what feels kind of like a handle. Pushed toward the blade, lift slightly, then pull back with it still lifted to remove it. When I did that, it came out like it was designed that way. You would think adding a quick description on the flap of how to safely remove the inserts without breaking the darn thing would be easy enough to do. Anyway, I hope this helps.

I just got one of these at a garage sale, very obvious it hasn't been used much, wonder why, hehe. Spent the last 10 mins trying to get the safety blade out, wow, going by what Sara said, here's what to do, at the pointed end of any insert, push down a little bit, at the handle end, lift a little bit, that will release the back prongs and the insert just pops right out.
