How does one disconnect a Leviton screwless 3-way lamp socket?

It is trivial because the socket will be replaced anyway.

Trivial Answer:

I managed to muddle through and get it open. A little plastic door with two barbed tabs holds the lamp cord against two little knives which pierce the insulation and make contact with the copper. Worse than a backstabbed receptacle.

Kleins are too fat. Side cutters work just fine if you cut the cord and throw the socket away. A 4 pound hammer ought to work as well.
