My usual technique to deal with these sort of brick and wall-wart PSUs
that are glued together is to carefully squeeze their plastic sides in a
small padded vise to break the glue joint. With practice, you can split
one of these open with little to no damage. Don't be tempted to use a
mallet as you could with really old linear transformer wall-warts though.
The g-forces generated by a mallet will break components off of a pc board
in a switchmode PSU.
