How do you take "Gracious Living" plastic drawers apart?

I have some plastic drawers that I would like to take apart, so they can fit into a new space. I have tried a number of times to separate the frame, in order to do this, but it's really stuck! Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

    The adhesive may be stronger than the plastic. Use lubricating oil, Goo Gone, or heavy-duty adhesive remover. Let it set half an hour. Then try to separate the plastic from the drawer slowly, using a putty knife, butter knife, or flathead screwdriver. If they still won’t separate, get out a strong, sharp saw. Good luck. ☺️

    I don't think it can be done, other than using a saw to cut the frame.

    I have been able to get a couple of them apart, but at the wrong spots. There seems to be kind of a tab that has to be pushed in on each "leg", but it's very difficult to do that, unless you use a screwdriver. However, the other ones just seem to be STUCK and I can't get them to budge.

    I finally managed to get them apart, by scraping off the plastic, until it came loose. Thank you!
