small appliance cable clip removal


Might be too small an issue for this forum, but I am trying to rewire a room humidifier.
I cannot for the life of my figure out how to release the small plastic bit that holds the electrical cable as it passes through the casing.

there must be a trick.
or, is this one of these disposal installs that is melted into place and cannot be removed and reinstalled?

Sometimes they can be fussy. There is a release on the top and bottom or on the sides that must be pressed and then pulled at the same time for removal. A pair of needlenose pliers should work.

I prefer a regular pair of plyers so I have more surface area to compress it.
Squeeze and pull, it will pop right out.

tada!
brilliant. thank you.
for the reference of others, this one removed by compressing it (severely) on the outside of the casing and pulling to the outside. (which probably should have been obvious but...)
