Lacking a special tool, we used to set a screw driver on the spring, about where the loop is or wherever works for you, and give it a tap with a hammer. Crude but effective. It's a good idea to grease the pivots and do a careful adjustment of the gap between the arms, then a wee drop of oil where the spring contacts the caliper arm. They're always dry and they work better lubed, just like everything
else.
