Default 6 mm split rings help putting on bottle cap!

Are there any hints to putting on the split rings? They are so small it makes it hard to open them up and keep it open while getting on the cap. Any suggestions would be great, thanks!

I use those but found that 6mm are really small to get on and seems like the chains dont move around too well so I went to 8MM

Yeah I have the mini ones too, and still like the 18MM but I dont like anything to catch so it might be just me
