How to Remove a Backup Sensor

I have read here a couple of times that the backup sensors on our trucks are tough to get out without breaking. I was wondering if anyone who has done it can offer me some step by step instructions on how to do it without breaking it.

Any help would be appreciated

I broke one of mine. Here is the right way to do it.

You need to reach one hand around the back side of the bumper and there are two tabs that you have to hold open, and at the same time with your other hand push the sensor through the bumper. Dont pull on the sensor, that is what breaks them.
