  • Slide the plastic opening tool under the key you wish to remove until it is up against the bottom part of the key.

  • Then, lever the plastic opening tool. It should catch the key.

  • Finally, keep levering the key until it pops out.

  • We do this to avoid depressing the key. It becomes much harder to catch the lip with the key pushed down.
