Help with Body Fastener

Need help knowing the way to remove (and reinstall) this body fastener on the side-under-seat trim pieces.
I've searched for the tip on how to remove these without destroying them. I'm sure it is easy, huh.

Use a flat blade screw driver and insert it in one of the slots, pushing it under the center pin. Pry gently (or twist screw driver blade) until the pin pops up, remove the entire thing. To reinsert make sure pin is up, push fastener body into hole then push pin down.

My ATV has several dozen of these holding it together.

Excellent ! Exactly Right !! Thanks STCorndog.

Now I know these and the center-pop ones around the dashboard. I wonder how many others there are ...
