cant remove rails for DL360 G5

can someone tell me how to remove teh rails from a rack for this mounting kit?

there appears to be 2 buttons on the outside of the rails however i do not have access to the outside of the rack. i have managed to release the rails at the back but cant seem to find out how to do it from the front? i have servers above and below that i dont really want to remove, is there a special tool i need?

ahh no, the attachment seems to relate to converting a tower to rack server.

i am trying to get the rails out of a rack. i can get the server out but as i dont have access to the outside of the rails (servers above and below) i cant push the buttons that appear to be on the outside.

is there some kind of trick to doing this?

I finally found the answer by using an old metal tweezer like IC puller. The kind that used to (and maybe still does) come with computer tech tool kits. I simply broke it in half (making two rack rail removers!) and the little lip on the puller fits into the rail slot perfectly.

I manage to remove the server using waste Car Key , Inserted the key both side (one by one) and push the latches  !
