I can remove the QD but do i need to squeeze the things on the black part to pop it out?
They’re are two tabs one on each side of the button. Press those tabs in and pull the button out.
I just did this last night on my own HRAP 3. They’re held in place with the 2 tabs on the actual body of the button (they’ll probably be the same color as the button itself), if you squeeze those tabs the button should come out the top of the plate.
got it , thanks
