Well, there's this one, at The Shack:

Says unavailable online, but available in most stores.

Should be able to find something similar at either a local Shack, or a "real" electronics store.

Hobby stores might also carry them, actually.

There have been at least two articles on EMSL recently about tools, as well:

and

Also try Harbor Freight, if you have a location nearby.

Hope this helps! Good Luck! Smile

Our preferred method is to insert a miniature screwdriver in from each end to pry it up just a tiny amount. Once it's up high enough on both ends, then slide the screwdriver all the way under it, and rock it back and forth, gently pulling it up. It's very important not to *suddenly* jerk it out.
