Question [Q] Removing the book cover from Tab S 8.4?

Is there a right way to remove the official book cover from my 8.4? The thing is held real tight against my tablet, so a part of me is afraid I might rip something out by accident if I pull too hard. Even the official instruction sorta says not to?

Submerge it on water to soften the connections.

Seriously though, just lay it down flat, place your fingertips beneath the edge closest to the buttons and lift up. Pops right off. Gets a bit easier as it breaks in. It's a sturdy bit of design.

Best way I've found.

Close cover over tablet face. Don't close the magnetic flap.
lay the tab face down . Screen should be covered from step 1
Lift back flap
Place hand on back of tablet where you lifted flap.
light press now and pull up on flap.
should unsnap easy

That's what worked for me. Just grab as close to the lift of the flap as possible.
