A small spring wood clamp with the rubber end caps removed works well.
Stick the clamp end into the slot between the front and rear halves, and
then squeeze the handle. As the clamp goes to open, it will pry the
halves apart. Do this gently in a few places around the case, and the
whole unit will easily pop apart.
