Make sure you are well grounded. I use those blue rubber gloves that cost $12 at auto zone.. go buy some (500 pair for $12). Get a pair of needle nose pliars and gently squeez the plastic tabs closed and then work them back and forth in rotation (slowly) wihtout touching the metal part of the pliars to the board surface. Be patient and they will release.
