After about two minutes to locate my drill, I tried Clouseau's technique and the cap came right off in about 10 seconds!
Upon further inspection from the back side, the half inch suggested distance is important. The drill should come through the slots in the white nylon ratchet just outside of the rubber seal. There does not appear to be any metal or chance of vapors in this section of the cap, so it should be safe. You only need to drill through the black outer layer; as soon feel the drill go in, the job is complete.
Thanks again to Clouseau on this great tip.
