Bought the special tool and followed the advice and it took 15 seconds to remove each one. A lot better than the way others say

I used a very small plastic trim tool and they came out no problem. Onextra is correct. IND's method is wrong.

This is the only place online I've found it for sale. I was debating buying it, however I looked at the design of the tool and the installation diagram and it seems that one can substitute any other similar looking tool. I think I will follow the installation diagram and use a tool I already have which looks similar.

This tool is a game changer. Not sure if I'm ever going to reuse it, however, it took me all of 5 minutes to get this DIY complete.

I thought the same when two arrived, better than scratching the paint and snapping clips though, also a lot less stressful.
