In case someone finds this useful, I found a way to do it without fumbling. Requires a rubber band and a standoff and screw. Once I have the 4 finger plate in, I wrapped the unit with a rubber band. I then inserted the jack and opened the side plates enough to get the drum in. I then moved the jack to just below where the 2 finger plate goes and opened the side plates just enough to get the 2 finger plate in and removed the jack. Voila!

Cool, I am assuming it will be perfectly clear when/if I ever actually dissemble one of these things. We sort of need a quick ref one could just look up O-scale E unit repair in.
