I just wanted to add.... I've got BOTH a USA (black) & Vietnam (anniversary, silver edition) version of the 8x10E. The USA with white piping -- that grill comes off easily. But, my newer AV version (from Vietnam) was not cooperating. I found this & tried it... worked great! The first couple velcro pieces take quite a bit of force, but the rest are much easier.
Just wanted to bump this for more to read.. in case they have the same issues as I did.
