    It sucks lol.

    Use a small flat blade screw driver to start to twist the nubs and open the c clip, but be careful. The c clip will probably break, but I've seen nubs break as well

    Put some tape (painters or electrical) on the lenses close to the c -clip in case you have a slip.:(
    I use needlenose pliers to squeeze the clips tight- I tried hemos but they did not generate enough clamping force to bend the new clips.

    you just grind the nubs flat on the expander so they have something to bite on, the one i linked probably wont work you will need to find a smaller pair but i just posted that for reference.
