Hi there!

Take a look at one of our expert's advice on the installation and removal of our 70-216 from a previous customer's discussion: 

Replacing these clips is fairly simple. To remove the screen clip, first pull it out enough so that the small barb at the top is out of the channel. Then, lift up on the clip until the "V" catch, which can be located on the bottom of the clip, clears the channel as well. Finally, tilt the clip sideways until it releases, after which it can be removed.
To install the new clip, simply insert the tab into the appropriate slot on the screen channel, then reverse the steps listed above; that is, rotate the clip towards the channel, push in the "V" catch, then the barb at the top.
