Inspired by the cd spindle case trick and not wanting to ruin a perfectly good cd storage device,
I came up with this. I used a grocery store points card but any stiff plastic card will do. The plastic is much stiffer than the cd case and it works perfectly. The metal piece next to it is what I use to poke out the tabs and lift up the tricky hard drive side tab. 100 points to whoever can tell me what its original use is. I'm sure lots of other people have come up with their own.
