Not to dig up old news, but... *grabs shovel*

Any tips as to actually getting the little circlip bastards out? The "remove circlip" step listed above isn't working for me. I have a decent set of clip pliers, but they keep on slipping off of the pliers as I try to pull them out. Every. Single. Time. I have tried:

1. Everything

2. Alcohol (for me, not the bike)

3. Cussing+Screaming (the neighbors are starting to talk)

4. Sulking in my own sorrows for most of February

5. Going to confession

6. Everything

This should not be this hard. Is it an angle thing? Perhaps my pliers are just not angled correctly? Is there a Moby specific tool that I am missing?
