    Pinch the 2 ends closest to the tip together and the clip should become loose. Then slide it down the stem.

    Another thought....once you get the clip off, toss it. You don't really need it, and it makes it easier to remove the thermo for future calibration.

    If you still can't remove the thermo once the clip is off, squirt it with some aerosol dust remover from Radio Shack; that'll chill and shrink the metal tube.
