Nah, pretty straightforward: use something that won't mar the paint on the legs, like the edge of a piece of wood.
I took mine off while the forks were on the bike - popped them up and out of the retaining groove and then snipped them with metal snips. I knew I would not ever put them back on because the bike looks so much better without them.
