The the shifter in 2nd or 4th gear and try to get your body over then shifter/knob and apply a constant pulling force on it. Don't twist it and don't jerk on it...! Constant pulling force is needed for it to release.

Attempt to have the knob come off toward your stomach or chest area because when it releases it will have the force of you pulling along with the knobs weight and your arms. If it's aligned to release toward your head you will be sorry!!! Don't let it hit your face...

If the car is a late model and has a lighted emblem you will have two wires that are attached to the knob. Be careful when the knob releases that you don't break these wires. Get your body close to the shifter so the release (when it happens) is a short distance into your stomach.
Oh, don't allow the release to be too low want to protect the family jewels! If you're going to err, it's better to have a black eye than a black .....
