How to disconnect Mag Ride Shock

Thinking about lowering my Z with some lowering coils. It looks like following the SS lowering DIY should work for the most part. But I cant seem to find any instructions on how to remove the electrical connection on the Mag Ride shocks.

I have seen some mention just strong arming them and others making a custom pin to remove them. So for those that have done it how did you disconnect them for the coil swap ?

Thanks
