Best way to change hooks on split rings?

They seem to be making split rings on lures smaller and stronger than they used to. When I wear my reading glasses, the split rings look about the same size they used to when I was younger, but I am having jolly trouble with them.

How do you open the split ring and change the hooks? Or take the little split rings off the tie point with lures like the SX40?

i've always just slid the blade of a knife into the split ring, opening the end up enough to slide the treble on or off.

however I have also had a few 'close shaves' where I've nearly impaled my fingers with sharp trebles too.

so pay no attention to me.... :oops: :roll:
