A TRICK TO OPEN THE LID
I just bought screws in the new box. After struggling with the lid, I found a way to open the lid. I have a larger box but I think it will work on the small. I place my fingertips on the lid and my thumb on one of the clear corner tabs. With my thumb, I apply pressure to the tab deflecting it toward the box. While it is deflected, I pull the tab up a little and it presses that corner of the lid up. I can hear and feel the lid snap open.
