Default removing wires from wire harness

What'* the easiest way to remove wires from a wireharness for uneeded wires? I use an amp for my stereo so I don't need all of the speaker leads, the dimmer, or any of the other w ires besides the positive wire, and the ground basically. This will save a lot of bulk from the harness. But... how do you remove the uneeded wires? I have tried pulling as hard as I could and they don't budge, and I haven't found a way to release them. Any tips?

There are little tabs that keep them locked in. You need to look closely and probably use a pick to push on the tab. Wires will come right out.

I'm removing wires from the aftermarket vehicle wire harness and the aftermarket deck wire harness. The 2000+ don't have wire harnesses anyways. I'm not removing any of the factory wiring in other words.
