How to open bonnet (hood) vertically?

I've read a few times on here that the bonnet can be opened vertically by pushing a button on the gas strut but I can't figure how to get mine to do this. I'm sure I've seen a photo on here too showing the button but have searched for ages and can't find it.

Any help telling me how to do this would be grately appreciated (I need to fit my easyroof you see )

Thanks in advance

Thanks Bazzle, just been out and tried it (it's 11pm here, I think my neighbours wondered what I was doing). I hadn't realized also that you have to keep pushing the bonnet up until the button pops out of the lower hole...that's going to save me banging my head again
