  • Use a thin piece of plastic, spudger, or fingernail (if you have them) to lift up the edge of the grip, and pull up slowly.

  • Repeat for the other two grips

  • The large one on the battery-side is the easiest to start with. This is required to remove the front & back panels

  • The small one on the back is a bit difficult to get started, but not really difficult to remove.

  • The one on the AV panel will be easier if you open up the AV port cover.

  • Remove the adhesive like you would rubber cement, just rub your finger against it, it will come off.

  • Optionally throw the balled up adhesive at people pretending its a booger :)
