There's holes in the sides.  Stick a thumbtack or a paperclip in the
third hole from the back, top row of holes on either side, and it'll
release the clips holding it closed.

about 2" back from the ps, there is a latch located inside the box.
You've probably noticed that the sides lift slightly. The latch is under
side flaps... take a butterknife and slide it up in there and unhook the

latch. There is one on each side.
If you look at the side of the box...sorry I can't remember which should see a bunch of little holes. If you look real close
there should be a couple towards the back that have the release tabs.
If you use a bent paperclip or small screwdriver you should be able to
push in the releases. Let me know if you get it. I'm at work now but
should be home in a few hours....where I have a few 411 boxes.

On the side of the box count 5 columns of holes from the back and then
insert a small flat bladed screwdriver into the 2nd hole down from the
top. This should push the rear retaining clip in. Do this on both sides
the rear of the cover will hinge up. The hinge is at the front.
