Sorry, no real tips here, but I've have the same problem. Broke the first one I tried to disassemble, and was successful on the second one.

There are at least two different versions of the Barrel. Although I can't remember the exact details of the visual differences, the top and bottom black pieces have different things molded into them (a symbol or two I think). Maybe the two different versions were glued together with different glue. Or maybe I just got lucky the second time.

All I can suggest is work with the assumption that the glue seal is crackable and try to stress it a little before starting to pull.

Good luck. If you happen to figure out a method, please share!

I never knew they were glued. I have always been able to just pull one end off as if it was a push fit.

You need to go carefully, pull straight up. If it twists/tilts it will break.
