Smile Ibanez Tuner Disassembly Question?

Does anyone know how to get the plastic cap off the back of an Ibanez tuner without marring it up?
A small screwdriver will most likely mess up the edges.

Try a dot of hot glue and a stick.
Then let us know how to get the glue back off.
Maybe heat it up and wipe it?

You realize the Ibanez tuner has a substantial monetary value?

Honestly, I had one pop off a tuner once and it was a bitch to get back on. I have a set of tuners I want to do this to so I'll think about it.

Yeah, Obama's my neighbor! It's like going to ask to borrow a couple eggs, but instead it's like "can I borrow a couple nukes?"
