How to remove the collet knob

Question, what's the best procedure for removing the collet volume and tone knobs top cap on a Prestige guitar? That top cap seems to be a bear to unscrew by hand what do you folks use since I don't want to mar it? Also, is a counter-clockwise direction used to loosen the top cap? Thanks!

Re: How to remove the collet knob

Besides something like leather or rubber to get a better grip, I've always found it's just as simple as gripping more of the top than the sure grip. I can agree some just won't want to come off, then they come off as easy as could be. It's all about the grip.

Thanks Rich! I'll assume counter clockwise to loosen it.
