Removing Light Switch Covers

Hi!

I'm definitely not mechanically savvy, but I try to figure some things out.

I have an 08 Dutch Star and would like to know how to remove these light switch covers without scratching and damaging them or the wall?

There's four almost one way pins that hold the faceplate to the base. The face will pull off, some of the pins might break when doing so.

This offers some detail, you can see two of the pins facing out:


JR Products makes them. Google finds many suppliers.

1" putty knife will help. Insert into the edge and rock back and forth.

Thanks! This visual helps. I hope to avoid breaking the pins.

Put some Blue Tape on the wall and then use the putty knife.
