Thermometer clip

I want to calibrate my thermometer and I can not get the clip off. Does anybody know how i can do this. It has been about 9 months and many cooks sine i last calibrated. There is a lot of crud on the stem. I tried using a ball of foil to clean it.

    squeeze it together and it'll slip right off like a greased weasel
    This is my signature line just so you're not confused.  Love me or hate me, I am forum Marmite.

    Once you get it off, throw it away.  You don't need it, and it makes removing the thermo a lot easier to calibrate or if doing a clean burn

    It's not a science, it's an art. And it's flawed.

    Pull thermo from the outside, clip will fall off.

    And you can set your target temp for 12 noon by spinning thermo due north.  Pizza, 500 straight up.  Butt, 225 straight up.. Anywhere b/t 11 and 1 you are good.  One of my favorite little tricks I've heard here yet (and there have been a lot).
