    I agree the alloy ones are probably a lot better, but I've been using the cheap plastic one so often that by now it works ok. There's kind of a knack to it. Use the 2 fingers of one hand to keep it from spreading while you kind of urge it against the little flange at the top of the coil cap. Then you pull real gradual with the finger of the other hand. You pull gradual because there is some suction you have to overcome. Like I said...for the cheap and patient.
