Default 4" Halo Led New Construction Access

I'm installing some recessed cans and was wondering if anybody know how to access the junction box? Old school cans have the three screws and out she goes? I know it can be accessed but don't know how? Any help will be much obliged.

Friction fit. Play with it and you will get it out.

Grab the lip with the tip of your strippers. Move it a bit and then start going around moving it bit by bit. Eventually it will come. Kind of a PITA.

Score the ceiling finish around the can with a utility knife first. The trim on a 4" can doesn't cover a lot.

Edit: I see the board isn't even up yet .
