Thinner boot puller, 45 degree needle nose pliers or regular ones, paint can opener, etc. Pulling the boot, or worse the wire, sort of makes it work like a Chinese finger trap. You need to get in low and push it off rather than pull.
Two other little bit about spark plug removal. Use and air hose, a straw or piece of rubber tubing to blow out the dirt and crap that could be sitting around the plug. Anything left in the socket hole could fall into the cylinder when the plug comes out. Always put some dielectric grease on the connector before putting it back together. I also add anti-seize to the thread but that may be going a bit overboard.
Not all those who wander are lost.
