I have my cable set so I can loosen the adjuster barrel in the lever to be able to open them

The unhookable end of the stradle cable has the usual cylindrical-shaped head. Try rotating the cable 90 when you're attempting to maneuver it out of its slot. This generally gets me juuuuust enough extra clearance.
