AD wiper arm removal?

I've got to remove the wiper arms on my 47 to reposition them. Is there a trick to moving the little catch finger thingie that holds the arm on?

That's a better design. Mine has a little finger on the bottom of the wiper arm that slips under the the spline area of part on the truck. I've got a couple extra water arms. I'll take a pic when I get to work tomorrow morning.

Trico actually made a set of tools just for this job. After you do it once you will see how easy it really is.

I've removed them with a small flat blade screwdriver, either straight or bent at the end, inserted behind the little clip. Pointed end of a can opener has done it as well. Keep in mind that if you tweak that little spring clip a lot, it has been known to fall out of the wiper arm when you pull the arm off of the post. If this happens, you can easily tweak (bend) the clip and then insert it into the arm.
