Shield Plate Stuck when LCD came off

The glass on my iphone 5 is coming off, went to remove the LCD to see if it was the battery swelling to cause this. When i removed the LCD the shield plate stayed in the phone. Not on the LCD like the photos show. How can i get this out with out damaging anything, i used the pry tools, but it wont budge and the tool looks like it may break. any help would be appreciated.

Had this problem a couple off times you just have to pick away at one corner and get it out and the rest will follow as it's all one peice..

If the shield is completly stuck down beside the battery put a long thin pry tool under the sheild on the left side (battery side) and pry up so the tool is point into the sheild and not the battery cause you don't want to pierce it
