I used a very small screw driver and worked it under the tail end of the clamp. There are little thorns that stick out from the under layer that hook into the outer layer. Basically, you're trying to pry the 2 layers apart so that thorn lets go. (Man, I suck at descriptions!
My attempts at cutting the clamped portion proved futile.
Getting the clamp off was actually the hardest part of my fix.
