The plastic opening tool comes in a few different styles, and is your go-to tool for removing screens and separating cases. It has a very thin non-destructive edge that gets in between small cracks easily.
Use the plastic opening tool to:
Lift zero insertion force (ZIF) tabs and disconnect cable connectors.
Pry open tightly sealed device cases.
Remove digitizers and glass screens.
Lift, cut, or remove tape, adhesive, and/or thermal paste.
