I am glad I am not the only one that had this issue removing the frame tool. It took a shirt tale and some extra force. I only remove the tool to change grip sizes. The folks at the guns hop confirmed this too - cloth and pliers.
The only time you have to remove the frame tool is to change the grip size. Otherwise a pen, small screwdriver will work to lower the sear deactivation lever. Yes the idea of tight is good since the palmwell grip is held in place by this tool.
