Need Help Removing Plastic Clips From Hoophouse Frame

I've got my greenhouse plastic held onto an EMT conduit frame using the "labor saver fabric clips" at Growers Supply (http://www.growerssupply.com/farm/supplies/prod1;gs1_greenhouse_film_and_covering-gs1_greenhouse_films;pgcc6209.html). It's getting pretty warm in there, however, and those things don't want to come off!

Does anyone else use these? Have you had any luck getting them off without trashing the plastic? I need some tips, because the clips are being very stubborn.

If you have a small screwdriver with a very thin blade (not just a standard size screwdriver) you could work the tip gently under one end of the clip and then use the screwdriver as a lever to pry the clip off.
