Grab the second from last leg, you don't want to grab the last one as they use those to swim, pull the leg off at the last joint and if it slides off and reveals a new soft leg underneath then it is ready to peel, if it pulls off and just reveals a white sinew then it's not ready. You will also see a hairline crack along the side of the crab and if it's already popping you'll see that the shell is lifting from the back.
