How do I open the coupler box Kadee cars without breaking them? I need to change out a coupler on one after it was bent in shipping

The cars on my layout have a small screw on the underside of the coupler box. That’s pretty obvious, so I’m guessing you don’t have that. Can you post a photo of your couplers?

The 'top' of some KADEE coupler boxes snap in. If you don't see the bolt Mark described, try gently prying off the 'lid'.
If you break it, just replace the entire unit.

I dont have the screw or pin, its looks to be all one piece and I have broken one under frame like it before. Might just have to order one then

I can’t picture how a Kadee metal coupler got bent in shipping.....the cars seem very secure in their boxes.....
