    Remove the screws. Use a flathead screwdriver to remove the plastic tabs. You'll probably end up breaking the tabs, but it's not a big deal because I really don't see the point of their existence in the first place.

    How did you guys break the tabs? After removing the bolts I put a small flat head screwdriver between the base and top of the tab and twisted slightly, they popped right out.
