Fuel injector connector removal

Anyone have a helpful hint on removing the stock fuel injector connectors? I see the tab, just don't don't know if is should pull twist or anything else and don't want to force it.

ok, I forced them last night and I think I damaged the connectors so i ordered new ones to replace them all. I was only able to snap one of the eight on, the others wouldn't snap on. What's the trick to these? What position should the green safety tab be in when removing and installing them? I don't want to go through this again with the new ones, especially now that I will have to probably splice them in if I can't get the connectors apart. I purchased a couple of extras so I can practice on my old intake.

I found this with a google search and you probably now know the trick. It took me a little figure it out too.

Simply slide the green tab out as far as it goes, then push in the gray tab and they slide right off.
