is there a special way to take spark plug wires off a 95 mustang?

my dad and i are having a hard time taking the wire boots off the plugs. he said last time he replaced them, he and my uncle used pliers and ended up tearing most of them and had to replace them all. is there an easy way to take them off without damaging the engine or the wires?

    i own a repair shop,and if you,ll twist them a little as you pull on them they will come right off of it,some of them will be a little hard because of the heat that there exposed to but a pair of pliers will help on doing this and some of the boots may be bad also,and if so you cant stop them from tearing up,its just age and heat that gets to them,good luck hope this helps.
