Easy way to change center caps

I followed this video:


I used 3M Double sided tape (With the Red film - obviously didn't expose the other side of tape), but used the same procedure. I pulled with my fingers on the handle. I was able to swap out the center caps in minutes. Came out super easy. The tape comes off super clean afterwards too. Anyone that wants to align all their center caps or easily swap them out, I recommend this!

I tried this to no avail with my BBS's...maybe their centers have a tighter spring? I did find, however, that a 2" suction cup worked perfect. The BBS caps are very smooth. Stuck it on, and pulled. Out came the cap!
