For delicate tasks, sometimes normal pliers are too abusive to use; their teeth mark up soft items and chip paint. Teeth-less pliers are so smooth they can't hold anything very well, it will just slide right out.
The answer: soft-jaw pliers. If you have a old pair of annoying pliers that don't work well for your needs, add some Sugru and make them great!

Step 2: Prep and Place Sugru
Cut open the Sugru sachet and knead in your hand until it is warm and soft. Break off two pieces, about 1/4 of the sachet each. Mould them around the tip of the pliers, flattening the end, sides and inner face into semi-flat surfaces. This will help picking up small objects easier.
Place the pliers so the Sugru isn't coming into contact with anything and let dry for 24 hours.
