  2. Begin to remove back cover by inserting the plastic opening tool under the usb and power input slots.
    • Begin to remove back cover by inserting the plastic opening tool under the usb and power input slots.

    • Continue by sliding the plastic opener to the right at the markers shown until the cover releases.

    I think it's better to open from the right, not the left. The right will separate if you lever the metal back to the outside and push the plastic to the inside. The lft is more like a inge and would damage more easily.

    Just my $0.02.
