Removing lower trim peice on steering wheel

I did some searching and found out you need to stick 2 screw drivers in the back to pop the airbag out first, but i cant figure out how to depress the clips. Dont want the thing blowing in my face. If anyone has any tips or idea on how to remove the trim please let me know.

I just removed mine last week, hold the screwdriver just above the horizontal line, and as you press in, with the other hand try and lift on the edge of the side of the airbag you are working on.
