Do not pry from the top or bottom of the metal cover. There are a pair of 1/4" long openings on either side of the metal cover at the midpoint of the case. The plastic teeth which lock into the openings must be withdrawn. I used the point of cuticle sissors to get behind the metal strip under each tooth and pull outwards a small distance to release each tooth. The sides of the cover will spring up.
