take a plastic hammer and tap on each side as you try to pry it off with a screw driver. Just don't hit it to hard or you will dent it.

I usually use a set of slip joint pliers and wiggle it back and forth and they come right off !!

I've found, sometimes they might be out of round a bit, and if you
rotate it a bit, and then wiggle it with slip joints. Keep rotating it
till you find the sweet spot.

:ditto:
And if you're worried about leaving channelock marks on it, you can put a piece of inner tube on there to protect.

I also use the channel locks w/a rug under the teeth.That seems to work well.The soft tapping w/the dead blow hammer would also work.
