The above link is written in Italian. After looking at the page for what seems an eternity it dawned on me how to operate the fastener. Followed the illustrations and it worked like a charm. To me the fastener operates in a counter intuitive way and that is why it's a PITA.
Just for those going through the hassle of how to remove and re-install the clips here is a video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fd7yKRTOKLY and for those (like myself) looking for dimensions and instructions on how to do that I've uploaded this image for you. Cheers.
Even the OEM Honda one on my CBR125R battery box cover that is similar to that style, has gone all fubar. The kind you have to turn mit der screw driver is a fail, in my book.
Thanks anyway JoeZ! Good on ya for keeping your eyes peeled for such stuff

This Trim Clip is new to me on any Honda I've owned and took about a minute before understanding its' operation. It IS slippery to handle, as mentioned.
Lifting the center 'tee' above flush before reinstalling the clip took me awhile to figure out. Luckily I've not broken or lost one in the bowels of the bike......yet.
Learning something every day. Unfortunately I just ordered a pack. I guess I'll just keep'em as emergency spares?
