My tech used to cut a strip off, pull back a bit of the tape, then 
cellotape it to the desk at both ends before gently pulling the rest of 
the tape off. It leaves the strip with all the parts exposed, ready to 
be picked up by tweezers. Still fiddly though :)

Oh yes! I got a cheap CK Tools 492001 from Rapid a number of years ago. 
Didn't know I needed it - know I use it all the time.
