But have you looked at the specific file that edj attached, or did you just go to the Dexter site? The attached document tells you clearly that the retainer just snaps in place. It must be pried off, then can be snapped back in place.

Here is a link that shows you what the retainer looks like. Should make it clear how it comes off. I also have a photo available if you need more help.

I have the new type and they just will not come off. I have tried to pry them off with a thin screwdriver, a punch, and pull them off with pliers. No cigar.
