any tips removing NRS knife holster from pfd?

I just bought a new pfd and I'm trying to transfer my NRS holster to the new vest. In the past I've cut it off, but I don't necessarily want to do that again. Right now I've got some butter knives in there trying to get some leverage on the barb of the holster. Tips? I'm sure youve done this before. Thanks!

I used a butter knife and twenty minutes of aggressive wedging and removed a NRS Co-Pilot knife just a few days ago..

I find I need to use a knife to attach it as well, but removing it was much more difficult.

I don't have any tips other than using a butter knife. Good luck!

The butter knives worked. I just needed to stick with it a little longer.

I like my knife on my shoulder straps, so I don't worry about having a holster where I need it and just use a couple of zip ties instead.

hit it with a blow dryer for a while to soften up the plastic, it should slip out pretty easy after that along with using the butter knife to pry.
