This thing is built like a tank and is impossible to open without damaging the case, it appears. Any secrets to opening it without using Thermite?

I tried using my iSesamo spudger, which has a knife-like pointed end, but it will damage the aluminum plate insert or container if I get any more forceful with it. I've asked the customer if he minds me damaging the case, so will update if he says no problem.

The answer is, to cut through the lid just inside the case edge, using a Dremel tool, and carefully pry it open.
