I got one of my two out last night, but didn't really want to destroy the diode in the process. Any suggestions for getting them out of there? Is there a particular tool that anyone recommends? Perhaps for those little tiny holes? I used the butt of my xacto blade and whacked the bladeless tip with a screwdriver, but that smashed the diode to smithereens. When I tried to pry the diode out via the little divots or holes, it just broke the tip of the xacto blade I was using...
