Buy a pair of snap ring pliers. They aren't that expensive.
If you plan on re-using the ring, you'll want to have the correct tool anyway. Using the wrong tool can damage/deform the snap ring.
Or worse -- make it fly away in an unknown direction. At work, we don't call them "Jesus! rings" without reason.
Heh, you're right; I went and bought some.--
