Default Trying to convert a cooler

I've got a nice sized cooler that I'd like to get ready for doing gain, but I can't get the existing spigot out. I can see that it is threaded, but there is nothing to grip on the inside to unscrew it. I'd like to remove it without damaging it if possible, does anyone have any insight on removing this sort of thing?

More than likely the inside piece is a plastic bolt and the outside is a plastic nut. If the hole on the inside is square or hex shaped, you need to stick something in there to stop it from rotating and then turn the outside with pliers.

The inside part is round, so that threw me off, but I was able to get pliers on the inside and got it off, woot! Can't wait to start AG
