    I have added heat shrink to some tweezers and that is a big improvement. I have also ordered a set of reverse pliers. ( you can't have too many tools!)
    The steady hands are something I can't do much about.
    Thanks again for all the replies!

    The clues are; broad tips on the tweezers, so they can't flip over each other and spin the part out, and a steady hand.

    Great for grabbing dropped things inside your boat; grasping battery, and other wires that are hiding under the deck.

    I find that unlocking them creates more problems than it solves,as as it always moves the part

    "At least with cross over tweezers it is a more constant pressure."
    The trick being that YOU don't have to apply that pressure, the tweezer doesπŸ˜‰

    Thank for the replies. I have appropriate heat shrink, so I can start from there. I'll try it asap and report back....

    In the past i have even used a small piece of sticky back draft excluder.
    At least with cross over tweezers it is a more constant pressure.

    If it looks right it probably is.

    "My solution is to use a couple of pieces of rubber insulation from electrical wire or some heat shrink tubing."
    That works up to a point Martin.
    It can be very hard to release the part without wiggling it sometimes.
    Depending on how much the part stretches the rubber.
    I tried it with silicon sleeving (look in the Missusseses iron😊) works a bit better as the silicon gives more on release. Heat shrink is very stiff☹️
    I prefer the 'cross over' tweezers (don't forget the Town & Country tires😁) though - instant releaseπŸ‘
    Cheers, Doug 😎

    Hi BK, (ex Prize fighter by any chance?πŸ˜‰)
    Maybe what you need are these, reverse action tweezers-

    As usual, and you can see in the link, there are various versions at various prices!
