Default Plenum cover removal

What is the best way to get the wiring harness anchors (the christmas tree looking piece that holds the wire tie around the wiring harness) out of the plenum cover?

Thanks in advance.

I made a small "funnel" out of a tapered plastic tube. This was then pressed over the "Christmas tree branches" to flatten them. This allowed me to pull the press in barb out of the cover.
