I was just referring to the rubber hose running to the back of the caliper. And a gentle crimp is sufficient. But I can understand the "mental red lights and sirens" going off when that post was read. I use a small set of long-nosed Vise-Grips. I had a Mercedes/BMW/Volvo Master Tech show me this trick. Amazing, the crud and dark crap coming out of those piston cylinders.
But you point is valid about taking your time and the path of least resistance. Valid, indeed. I've done that, too.
Caveat, if anyone has never done this, they could rupture that rubber hose and be in one **** of a mess. Only for those with some mechanical seniority under their belts.
