Hey I have new rotors and pads on the way and Im wondering whats the easiest way to reset the pistons without causing damage?

Ive seen some people say to use C clamps but then it usually scratches the powder-coat even with tape or a towel.
Also saw people saying you can do it by hand, but may cause damage to the pistons?
And then others say find the tool, but I cant find any place (like autozone that rents them, and to buy looks pretty pricey)

Suggestions?

Using a c clamp with 2 towels around the mounting areas of the clamp. Or use lots of layers of painters tape to recess them

Brembo's or regular? You can do Brembos with a screwdriver.
Google changing Brembo brake pad videos.
