How to remove plastic cover for female servo connector?

Hello, i have a few female servo connector and i need to of them to connect them to my FTDI programmer, but i cant manage to remove the plastic cover to expose the 3 pins, i tried to to pull it out but it wont go out, its a bit loose but it cant get out.

Anyone know how i can pull them off? Dont want to break them trying, 5 of them cost me 35$ at local hobby store...




Thanks

I took an exacto knife and slid it down the side where the big part of the connector starts, once it started it split the female part all the way down and popped the female part off the connector off to expose the pins.

^^ what he said.

The side you stick your knife into should have some kind of marking (on mine it's three parallel lines).

Edit: You paid $35!??? My friend, that is way too much O_O

Check these out: http://www.banggood.com/40pcs-20cm-F...o-p-75612.html

They have male to female as well, they're around $3.00 with free shipping. The good thing is it comes as one piece, so you can tear them off as needed, as many or as few wires as you need for whatever your purpose.

I've never seen them come glued like that before... Was there any kind of tab holding it in place or was it just glue?
