How do you pull the Switcher Key Cap apart?

I got and installed the new Switcher Key Caps.  I wanted to change the layout and pulled some keys but the plastic that the keycap plugged into came out with the keycap!  Now I can't get it apart.

Re: How do you pull the Switcher Key Cap apart?

Hi,

These keys are a bit tighter than our standard relegendable keys.

You need a pair of pliers. Pull directly straight and it should pop back out from the key.

Then the key plunger can be inserted back into the barrel by squeezing it so the posts go back in.

I did that early this morning using a good pair of small needle nose pliers, pulling in turn, each of the four wider plastic extensions, bit by bit.  Eventually, it came without breaking.

I utilize q-tips and rubbing liquor and even a nail record and a thin delicate fabric to get into the sides of each key.

On the off chance that you are somewhat of a muddled Marvin, I think you can get those plastic transparent secured that go over a console.
