How many remote bezels have you seen scratched up because someone used needle nose pliers to try and remove it?

I used a cheap PVC fitting to make a tool that will effectively remove/replace the nut without damaging the bezel or the nut. 

I used the nut to mark where the tabs needed to go and used my dremel to shave the plastic down." rel="nofollow">" rel="nofollow">

Very clever! And this "Thinking Outside the Box" tool comes with a part number.

The most powerful tool is the question.

I have a few of those bezels new nos out of the package and they for some reason have scratches in the same area.
