Removing Smoke Detector from base plate

I need to reinstall an entire system due to the change to Verizon.  I have 4 smoke detectors.  It may be that I don't have big enough hands but I cannot get the detector off the base plate.  Is there a trick to it?

@maggie.morris first things first, you have to push the base plate hard to remove. There is a small burr that locks it in. Once you do get it apart, a small pliers to snip it off will avoid problems in the future.  Now another question: Okay, your SIM is now Verizon, why are you installing an entire system? Are you going from SS2 to 3? Then it makes sense. What am I missing?
