Remove DL360 Rails from Rack

I've got a stack of 5 DL360's in a rack and I need to take the rails from the server in the middle completely out of the rack.

I've pulled the server all the way out, and removed the slider rail, but can't figure out how to release the fixed part of the rail from the rack. I can't remove the sides of the cabinet, and can't remove the servers that are above or below.

I'm sure it's something really simple that I'm missing.

Sorry, forgot to mention it's a G4 server.

Re: Remove DL360 Rails from Rack

I always struggle with removing G3/G4 rails from the middle of the rack. G3/G4 require something real thin to pull the lock. So far everything that I've tried does not grab the lock well enough and it takes a long time. Any ideas? Provided link to G1 is not relevant. G1 rails had screws.
