Icon5 How to unhook the fuel lines

Hey guys,

I need to unhook my fuel lines and I noticed that there's a spring-lock coupling holding them together.
I know there's a special tool you have to use to unhook the lines when removing the engine, but I just don't know where to get it.
I'd really appreciate it if someone could help me out here.

Thanks in advance,

lol well, my dad got so frustrated, that he got the bolt cutters and cut the line. so of course I had to find a way to get it off.. what I did was got a zip tie, cut it like an inch or two, curve it around the line, push it up in the little mushroom looking thingy, pushing the spring out, and then pull the line out. not the greatest description, but, hope it helps.
