To remove a coil when using a slotted or “eye of the needle” tool I always place my thumb against the tool just below the coil and “push” the coil off the tool instead of “pulling”. This way the coil does not get stuck and I do not loose the centre of the coil.
I like to give my coil a twist as I am taking it off the tool, this seems to help and stops the middle from popping out. If the middle does pop out I flatten the coil with a ruler on a hard surface.
You could also use your tweezers to take it off as it keeps the coil flat that way too. Just grip the coil against the tool and lift

Huh, I just take it off, since when I quill I do it so repetitivly, I don't even think about it! Off it goes, and that NEVER happens, since I've quilled literally thousands of coils, I wouldn't doubt. Maybe it's because usually I don't put too much pressure on the rolling, depending on how open I want the coil to be. I have it down to a second nature!
