How do you unplug Rift-S cable?

When I touch the cable I get static and disconnects. I've tried to unplug and replug the cable.

I removed everything but the cable is just attached very tightly. Is there some secret to unplugging it? I have big hands maybe that part of the problem. 

Should I use pliers?

    No do not use pliers.
    It is a tight fit, so somewhat difficult to unplug and plug back in - but it can be done.

    The Rift S uses DisplayPort right?  Some DP plugs have “claws” that retract when you pinch the plug a certain way. See if there’s any pressure points on the plug casing.

    Jiggling it worked for me. This looks like it resolved my static / disconnects

    You have to remove the facial interface, unlock the halo strap, remove it too and then remove the cable, after reset it just put everything on again and you're ready to go.

    For me I was able to get it by just removing the facial interface.
    Perhaps removing the Halo might have made it a little easier though.
