Shut off valves - Removing

I need to move the bathroom vanity. To do this I need to remove the shut off valves and then put them back in place after the vanity is out. Can I use the same compression rings or do I need new rings when I put the shut off valves back in place? If I have to remove the old compression rings, how do I do this?

If the vanity is going in the trash, you don't even have to remove the valves, just enlarge the holes around them. But, yes, you can reuse the compression rings. Shut off the water(house valve), unscrew the valves after bleeding off the pressure, and reinstall later. I usually mark which was which. Just a thought, but you can replace those valves with 1/4 turn ball valves with the same nuts/rings. 1/4 turn valves work much better and will likely work in 10 yrs when you redo the vanity again.
