But I still take them off anyway. I use a small (watch makers) flat head screwdriver and just pop it through the seal on the inner race, then just rip the bastards out.
Needle nose pliers are good for that part.
I guess I'm too lazy to change tools... Once the shield has popped up, I just work the screwdriver around the inner lip until the shield releases from the outer race, then toss it and move on to the next one...
