Black Plastic Grommety Clips

Are the various little black plastic grommety clip thingies (technical term) that secure various bits of the external body parts to each other meant to be re-usable?. I know they are supposed to release when you push the tiny central button in them, but mine always look a little sad by the time I get them off and rarely go back on as securely/tightly. What do other 'troopers use to get them off? Is there a trick to saving their fragile little bodies for re-use? Or do I just go buy a bagful of them at the dealer? Have to take my front cowling off to install a lite bar and auxiliary lites, and maybe do the Stebel install while I've got everything pulled open and I'm guessing I'm going to encounter a bunch more of these little gremlins, so I thought that I would ask ahead of time. Suggestions appreciated.

Ah, its great to ask a question when the 'wolf' is lurking. Guess I've been pushing too enthusiastically. Thanks, Greywolf.
