Removing the EPROM chip

How do you guys remove the EPROM chip from its position in the ECU?
The guide in the MV FAQ mentions using an plastic EPROM removal tool, but I have been unable to source one locally at 2 supply stores, and I'm wary of trying to prize it out when I'm not sure of how much pressure is required.

What sort of supply stores have you tried?

I got a ceramic one from an electronics store. It was only a couple of dollars.

careful not to touch the edges of the ECU housing as it may short out and you can say "bye-bye" to that eprom chip.

Best thing to do is disconnect the battery before you try anything.

If at first you don't succeed, use a hammer instead

I remember an early girlfriend used that type of anomality - but that was a long time ago !!

Rents - I tried Dick Smiths & Jaycar without any luck.

I touched the edges of my chip and it was fine, only when I put it in the wrong way did it short out
