Removing the I/O shield without damaging it.

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
So what's the best way to remove an I/O shield without damaging it? I'm getting a new case and I don't want to damage my I/O shield when I change cases.

Just give it a few firm taps in the middle until it pops out... cant really do much to it but bend it at the worst.

I just take my knuckles and act like im punching it and they usually fall right out

Yeah, you basically just push it out.

Be careful though; those edges can hurt.

I pop it out around the edges. This lets it bend/deform the least amount in the middle as the sides are more rigid.
