Camco battery strap

Is there a trick to releasing this strap on the battery box?

It seems unusually hard to feed the loose end of the strap back into the clip. It also seems to be intentionally pinched by the strap design.

I figure I must be missing something pretty basic... I'm sure I'll be banging my palm against my head and saying "duh!" shortly... but I would rather ask than break the clip and ask questions later.

Thanks in advance.

A little screwdriver to pry it apart a little and it will "pop" open and let you feed it freely.
Never had an issue with battery straps until this one but I agree its a PITA since they don't seem to bite unless it's clipped back down.
Next time I have the battery out I'll probably just replace it with one of my little cambuckle straps.

Thanks. It never occurred to me that it would open like a clamshell. I kept trying to jam the thing open with a screwdriver while the two halves were still together...exactly what it's supposed to prevent. Duh. Thanks for the tip.
