The white plastic grippers in my portable dishwasher unicouple are worn down to where the unicouple no longer stays on the faucet adaptor. I've located a unicouple repair kit but I need instructions.

Here are the instructions I found on one site, but I think they are for a GE model:

"The unicouple disassembles easily. Slide down the locking ring and you will see a metal retaining ring at the top of the center stem. Remove the metal ring and the locking ring will slide right off providing access to the white plastic pieces that grip the faucet adapter. Then simply replace the worn plastic pieces with the new ones from the repair kit, replace the locking ring and put the metal retaining ring back on the top"

When I slide down the locking ring I see a metal ring, but it is not something that's going to come off without forcing it. I think it is some kind of spring - it doesn't go all the way around the plastic piece that it's set into. Can anyone tell me how to disassemble this?

Thank you.
