Default Removing Seido Hard Rubber Case

Please Login to Remove!

Anyone have a method of prying apart the case without damaging it? I've got a new 2G SD card I want to install. This case is snapped tight (a great testimonial to the manufacturer's standards), but I figure a prying device might leave an unwanted mark. Suggestions?

The top left corner doesn't have a snap together part, o there is nothing holding it together there. They said it was designed that way for easy removal. I've done it several times and all you need is a fingernail. It's very easy to remove.
