    The trick is to grip and pull evenly from both sides. So a set of long nosed pliers are better than a screwdriver. But yes, a fork with suitably wide tines would do the job.

    I much prefer the sort the Japanese manufacturers tend to favour, with a central pin that pushes in to release the grips. But I guess they cost more as it's two bits of plastic rather than one!
