"I use a metal cap nut that fits tightly over the end of the filter. It fits the many flats on the end of the filter so tightly that it cannot possibly slip. If a cap nut slips, it might not be the right size. I have two cap nuts for the three cars we presently have."
Now I find that my cap nut that fits the old black filters does not fit the new blue filters. The blue filters are slightly smaller in diameter, and I cannot find a cap nut small enough to fit them tightly. So I had to buy the gizmo with the clamping fingers.

I have two "gizmos with the clamping fingers" and they both are too big for the blue filters.
16.5" (4.25" jaw) channel locks for me.
