Default FN backstrap issue

Finally got to the range and of course my FNS shot like a dream. My main issue is I cant seem to get the freakin backstrap off! I was able after a hard time to get the first one off. I wanted to see how the other one would feel, but now for the life of me I cant get this one off? Any thoughts or ideas?

What was hard about changing the back strap? Pushing the spring in or sliding the strap down ?

Does the spring push in that releases the back strap or is it hung up in the back strap.

Push up while pushing in?

If the spring does push in but will not slide down have someone else help to slide a sort dull knife blade in the top of the back strap to easy it down .
