Removing Steering wheel

I am really wanting to buy an SL leather wrapped wheel with audio controls for when I get my new aftermarket headunit. I have been watching some videos, and it seems pretty simple. I'm just wondering if anyone knows exactly how to do this, and is there a certain steering wheel puller that I need? Thanks. Will one of these do the job?

I know swapping the air bag takes about 2 seconds. But I didnt check to see about pulling off the steering wheel totally.

Current Rides:
07 Kawasaki ZX-14, Full Brocks exhaust, PC3, and more.
07 Nissan Versa, bought new, over 80,000 miles.
11 Nissan Juke AWD.

Sold:
16 others, from 07 Yamaha R6, 07 Yamaha R1, 05 Yamaha R1, 02 Z28 Camaro, 06 Daytona Chargers, to 00 C5 Corvette, to tons of turbo imports, and a couple more bikes.

From my understanding there are two holes behind the steering wheel, (in the back cover) one on each side. If you remove the caps, u stick an Allen wrench in the hole, turn it, and the airbag pops off correct? Please tell me if this is correct, that's my only concern on how to take it off. Then I think I know how to remove the steering whee. Im also just scared the airbag is gonna pop once reconnected. Even though I know your supposed to disconnect the battery and wait 20mins, before removing it, lol.

S (power package) and SL wheels both have cruise buttons. The SL with convenience package comes with cruise control buttons, but with audio control buttons, and it's leather wrapped.

SL is leather wrapped. Pretty much the only difference (besides the buttons).

you dont have to turn the allen keys, and actually you dont have to use allen keys at all, anything that size will work.

There are 2 small tubes once you pull the plastic covers off, and basically a couple inchs in, there is a metal wire about the thickness of a hanger going across the opening. Those just need to pushed about 1/4 of an inch towards the center of the wheel. That will be enough to unhook the 2 sides, the bottom part of the steering wheel will just slide out once the the 2 sides are unhooked.

Current Rides:
07 Kawasaki ZX-14, Full Brocks exhaust, PC3, and more.
07 Nissan Versa, bought new, over 80,000 miles.
11 Nissan Juke AWD.

Sold:
16 others, from 07 Yamaha R6, 07 Yamaha R1, 05 Yamaha R1, 02 Z28 Camaro, 06 Daytona Chargers, to 00 C5 Corvette, to tons of turbo imports, and a couple more bikes.
