It took me a while to figure it out. It screws apart. You have to grip the smaller lower portion and twist the larger upper portion. It takes a few tries to get a good grip. After the first time it was easier to repeat.

1. Remove the plastic cover on the inner half of the arm. Four screws: pay attention to where the short one goes. And if you strip them, you're dead, so use a screwdriver that fits them with no slop. Take Elmo to the hardware store with you. The cover on the upper side of the arm is still clipped in, so squeeze the bottom cover in the center to free it. The knob on the end will pop out at some point, so note which way it sits.
2. You can add a bit of tension by bending the metal strap that covers the swivel joint. Remove the three screws at the inner (knob) end. Bend the metal strap to flatten it. Just a bit: you can always try a bit more bend later.
3. Put those three screws back in. THIS IS THE IMPORTANT PART, and useful for any screws in plastic or wood: back each screw off (lefty-loosey) until you feel it click into the threads in the hole. That way, you won't strip the plastic.
4. Test it. If it doesn't stay up, bend the metal strap a bit more; if it stays up, screw the cover back on - same trick backing the screws out first. Done.
Set the camera's release mode to one of the two remote modes. The quick-response remote mode fires the shutter when you press the button on the remote. The delayed remote mode gives you two seconds to hide the remote behind your back before firing the shutter.
To set the camera's release mode, press the [info] button to display the information screen. Press the [i] button to put the cursor into the information display. Use the direction keys on the multiselector to highlight the release mode (fourth item from the top, along the right edge of the screen) and press [OK]. Use the direction keys to highlight the desired mode and press [OK].
For further information, please refer to the "Release Mode" section in the manual (page 65 in my copy of the manual).

I have a hp 733 photosmart and to release my card lock I just use my thumbnail to slide the door open a the depress the card slightly and the card is released enough to remove the SD card. Hope this helps you.
