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.

Very clever! And this "Thinking Outside the Box" tool comes with a part number.
The most powerful tool is the question.
