    My dad taught me something that might work. Take a piece of wire that with as close a diameter to your filter (slim filters will have a problem with this part). Cover about 80 - 90% of the filter circumference, and turn it like you would take it out normally. Make sure to have your lens gripped tightly, or secured.

    i use those grip pads from the kitchen section of any NTUC. 3 for a dollar.

    place over the lens, grip filter ring (not the front ring of the CPL cause that rotates) and remove normally. the pads are pretty sticky and provide very good grip in those hard to hold situations.
