That method works great because I've had to use it to pull off some tough knobs lol.
Rock on.

Yeah these were especially nerve racking, as they're set in and have a skirt so to appear flush with the panel, until this solution came to mind.

 

Thank the MASTERS for inventing the TAPE

 

Cheers MATE !

Grip with rubber works the best!

 

I use the rubber strip of this bottle opener.

Nice to see more methods.

 

Even nicer to have them all listed in one place !

Another method I used was make a loop with a nylon cord or strong thread, slip it under the knob, and then pull it out, with the other end wound on a pen or pencil for better grip.
