how to remove front "SS"

What is the safest way to remove the front "SS" emblem that is in the grill without breaking something?
Looks like it just pinches in there, but I'd rather not try to figure it out and tear something up.

Well I'm only going off what I have read so someone please confirm or make more accurate, but I think they are just stuck on and can be removed with fishing line or floss. Just run it back and forth between the car and emblem.

Dental floss for the ones on the paint. I think the others are screwed on..... After all, they have holes behind the emblems. Not sure, though.

The front SS is nothing more than a little clip on badge for the grill that does just "pinch in". All to have to do it reach a finger or 2 in behind the badge and unclip it. Easy as that, no floss, or string needed. On the other badges, yes, you'd need floss, or something.

Great. I wonder how long before idiot thieves figure this out and start stealing these. :P
