I use a thin staple wrapped around in place of a the eclip.
Use pliers it make them tight.
Works great.

If you have any clear ziploc bags, stick the wheel/axle/e-clip assembly into the bag before you pop the clip off and work through the open end, using pliers, exacto, whatever to pop the clip toward the bottom of the bag. This way the clip will land inside the bag.
