Needle-nose pliers will do the trick. My Gold opened very easily compared to the two Crystals I've fixed. If yours is tight you really have to apply a LOT of pressure when unscrewing the cartridge. It took me many tries to get them open but they will loosen and open eventually. If you can't do it then your dad would be the best bet.
