Default Removing a leg from a hi hat stand

I've got a Pearl 900 Series hi hat stand that I'm turning into a two-leg; I've already converted the bottom from the two metal bars to a solid baseplate, but I'm wondering... do I have to cut the legs off? Or is there a way of removing the two rivets that are holding on the third leg?

I had a 3 leg DW 9000 hi hat stand. I drilled the rivets out and the leg came right off. Use a bit that's slightly smaller than the rivet and drill right through the middle.

This one.

By drilling, you still preserve the spare leg which you can then buy a couple of screws and nuts for and convert it back into a three leg stand in the future. I'm considering doing this myself. Don't cut the legs off.

+1 for not cutting. Drill, baby, drill!

It is somewhat critical the two legs are forward.

Unless your PEARL legs swivel, you're going to be unsupported.
