Does any one know how to remove the cover off one of these power points?

 

I'm trying to replace it with a double power point.

 

Thanks

the card is in too far, it only needs to be in 1-2mm i would suggest using a teaspoon as the only part that will come off is the  top and bottom of those indentations/lines.

 

looks like one of the ARLEC brand that may need a bit of force to remove the cover

Get your fingernails behind it and pull.
A screwdriver or something similar may leave a nick in it

The plastic cover clips on and should just pop off if you put a screwdriver blade under the top or bottom, where the clips are, and pull gently.
