Or you could just yank on them till they pop off, then you realize they are permanently attached....then you cuss and punch things realizing that you just caused a couple hundred bucks of damage for some BS plastic tabs. Which could have been easily avoided by looking up how to remove them in FRF....

Oh wait, that is what I did, nevermind....

Yeah, gorilla glue did it. I didn't even think about the soldering iron trick, that would have worked too.
The really screwed up part was I that I was removing it to get mud out from around the edges while cleaning up, wasn't even trying to mod anything.

Is it possible to have these wrapped without removing them?
