Picture Frame Fastener

Dunno if this is the right forum, but didn't see another obvious one.

I need to get a picture frame apart. It's fastened with a couple of those metal wiggly things at each corner. The kind you straddle across the corner seam and hammer in. How do you get those off/apart?

Hold one side tightly....smack the corner of the other leg with a mallet...them you should be able to grab it with pliers and wiggle it out.

It's not budging. I'm afraid the frame will splinter if I whack it any harder.

Okay I situated it differently on the edge of the workbench and that worked. Now I just have to get them out of the other piece with pliers. Thanks!
