ok how do i get the transmitter out of the sensor i read it is easy but its a real pain

I know you are supposed to use that plastic thingie on the plunger, but i just use my fingers to pull the pronged tabs around the transmitter out and away, and the transmitter just pops out of the sensor.

An interactive tutorial is located on the Dexcom website.
Section 7 under “Seven steps to Start” describes the removal of the transmitter from the sensor with clear pictures.

Agree with aliceclones. Definitely fingers. Just pull back the tabs. That plastic thingy doesn’t work as well.
