If you push the caliper back and forth it will compress the piston, if only slightly, which will allow the pad to slip past the edge of the rotor. You don't need to worry about being gentle with the calipers (at least short of hitting them with a sledge hammer), they're made from cast iron and will hold up to just about anything aside from hitting them with a blunt object, which could shatter them.
