Default Metal Fuel line fitting tricks?

Hey, I'm dropping the gas tank on my 99 tahoe and I'm having a fit with the metal quick connect fuel fitting lines. I've even got the removal tool to get them off but I'm still not having luck. Any one know any tricks? Or is this just one of those pain in the butt kind of jobs. Here's a pic of the disconnectors tool that I am using.

spray silcone in the fittings works wonders for letting the tool in to release the clips

That is a damn good idea. I got one of them right away after I went back out, the next one ended up breaking but it was on the bad pump so that's not going to be an issue.
