Is there a special technique to get the fuel line off the fuel pump?? Help!

I bought all of these spring lock tools figuring one would get it off but still no luck.

Oh and I've been looking at the how to thread and it says just to disconnect them. The 3/8" disconnect fits in the whole perfect but it doesn't want to release that clip inside..

^^^^ Yeah I was gonna say those colored ones are junk. I have 2 of those metal scissor release things and they release every line in my truck. I can go get the sizes of each if you need them.

I have those middle ones and they work perfect for mine...

What I do is
-Put the tool around the line.
-Then push the line towards the filter
-Slide the tool under the line while holding the line toward the filter.
-Then the line should slide right off.

I have had trouble with the lines on the tank before. spray them down good with pb blaster to help loosen them up.

Sorry guys been a crazy hectic day. Thanks a ton for the replies! I ended up just pulling and twisting and it eventually came off. And I was able to get the old fuel pump out and the new one in. This is actually the second pump on the truck since I've owned it. Had a shop do the first one 2 years ago and he must have used the cheapest fuel pump you can buy. I got a Bosch Fuel pump with a lifetime warranty so Hopefully it won't go out again. I then ran into a snag with the fuel filter after. I didn't realize that when I got the fuel lines off the filter that a piece from the line got jammed onto the filter and when I put the new one on and turned the truck on fuel spued everywhere and couldn't figure out why soooo I got it towed again to a shop where my buddy works and he showed me what was wrong and then he also fixed my loose drive shaft that i had no idea of lol so long day, missed out on some work but the truck is back on the road for now ha. Long story but thought I'd share.
