    Wire cutters? I keep a pair in my garage. Though I’ve never yet had to cut a spring. (I think I last used them to open the godawful clamshell enclosing a roll of string-trimmer line. I THINK I bought them to cut screening years back to try to protect my tomatoes from marauding racoons.)

    I didn’t have to cut through the spring, only through the plastic housing; after that, it was simply a matter of squeezing the spring back into position.

    Clamshells, though, are indeed godawful.
