There are several plastic clips on the lower housing that fit into a channel in the aluminum top housing. Your goal is to use the Jimmy to push these clips inward enough to free them from the channel, while gently pulling up on the lower housing.

those Putty Knifes are:

too smal

too sharp

too expensive.

Better use a 100mm broad Spatula; (opens all the claws in on step)

out of plastic is good enough and cheap.

And use two of them at one time.

No, I didn’t think the Jimmy is expensive or too small.

And the Jimmy didn’t break something so it is the best solution I think!
