Any tips on how to take out CDs in double cases which are so tight one is afraid of breaking them?

Hi Adrian. In the past I snapped a couple of newly bought CDs when I tried to get them out of one of the double CD cases. When I took them back to the shop the sales assistant demonstrated an easy way to get them out by slightly twisting the disc round to the right and the CD should come out intact. I tried this and it worked. Hope this helps.

Thanks very much! Actually, someone down the road has just suggested putting a tiny drop of CD polish on one's little finger and then lubricating the central hole of the CD. I have not tried it yet, not having any polish for a start.

They're bad news. I hold the case with my left hand, and use the right hand's thumb to put medium to heavy pressure on one of the holders, pushing it inwardly, while simultaneously lifting the CD on the edge with the forefinger.
