    I've never owned an AGP graphics card, so I'm just guessing here, but shouldn't it just snap into place like on PCIe cards? *guessing*

    It's optional if the card is seated correctly... but some cards force it by having an extra shank on the end of the edge connector.

    Just flip it open with a finger-nail or something small to remove a card, or snap close with your finger-tip after installing an AGP card.

    It revolves/snaps-into place like a hinge from the bottom/far corner. Some mainboards also have a slide-lock so be sure to look closely once you're inside the case. Pics from user-guide's may not always be the exact agp locking mechanism as yours has- so look for either the flip-open, hinged model.. or one that simply slides back- away from the slot to remove an AGP card.
