I'm having a hell of a time getting the rear cap off of a 3 D Cell Maglite flashlight so it may have had an alkaleak disaster. I was going to apply 2 large channel lock pliers to it and find out if it is salvable. I decided to ask if there are strap wrenches or another wrench type that could do the twisting without the likelihood of marring the tube? Does the gaffers tape wrap thing actually work for this purpose or does anyone know of another suitable approach.
