I use a large deep well socket , a c-clamp and a hammer. Use the c-clamp to hold the cylinder in place. Put the clip over the back, and put the large socket over the clip and strike with the hammer. Might take a couple of trys to get it to seat.

Hold the wheel cylinder in place with one hand

Hold the retaining ring in place with one hand.

Hold the chisel or screwdriver against one of the tangs on the retaining ring with one hand.

Holding a hammer in the other hand, smack the chisel/screwdriver a sharp rap so that the tang seats in the notch on the wheel cylinder on that side.

Repeat on the other side.

pat yourself on the back with all 4 hands.
