    How to remove gatekeeper clips for waist strap?

    I did a quick search under the "How To..." category, under this thread, and on the blog, but didn't see how to detach the gatekeeper clips so that I can remove the waist strap on a Cafe Bag. Is there a trick or a video for this? Do I just need to build up my hand strength?

    It may seem a bit counterintuitive, since many people's first impulse is to squeeze the plastic ends of the gatekeeper clips together to release the catch for the clip. In fact, that action makes it hard to undo the clip. If you just push down on the metal clip so that it disengages from the hook end of the plastic, you can then easily press the plastic end of the clip in a bit so that the metal end of the clip slips over the hook end and disengages/opens up.
