Consensus on how to best remove the stock shift knob

Hey guys. Happy holidays. So my gf got me the ZHP shift knob for Christmas. Love the feel and weight and am excited to install it. I just have one question.

I've searched the forums and found a variety of opinions on how to best remove the stock shift knob. Some people say pull straight up. Some people say to stick it in an even gear. Some people say twist it (which I'm worried will break something). Others say to open the sunroof and stand in the back and pull up.

Basically, I'm just wondering if there's anything I should avoid doing (like twisting the stock knob). The one thing that I know for sure is not to hit myself in the face with it!

Thanks for your help gentlemen (and ladies too)
