Default cant remove fuel filter on 1995 ford ranger?

I can not remove the new fuel filter and the old one on there was easily taken off. I even and went and got the fuel line quick disconnect to try to get it off but it just wont come off.
well i didnt need the quick disconnect before to take the old one off. I think i was given the wrong one because its like jammed in there. And yes i am using the plastic ones

did you get the round, plastic disconnect set? the metal scissor type don't work as well. make sure you press the line into the filter before you use the tool.

I also tried using the 'quick disconnect' tool, it did not work easily and I gave up. I then used "channel locks" and had the filter replaced in 5 minutes.
I talked to a mechanic and the advise he gave me was- Be very careful and DO NOT damage the gas lines/end fittings or you will have a very expensive bill to replace the gas lines.
All I did was gently squeeze the fitting clamp and pull line from filter. It came right off.
Hope this helps.
