You need leverage. A screwdriver with a fat handle, with sticky rubber on it will do the trick. I have a pile of thin rubber ads that I save. I buy them anytime I see them in thrift stores or at garage sales. There are no commercially available equivalents - the ones in the store are too thick and too slick. The rubber is for grip, the large handle gives you the upper hand.
You also need some hand and arm strength, which I don't have much of any more. It seems that taking prednisone on and off for so many years, for my asthma, has taken a toll. That, or just getting old. LOL.
