Versa Tops

Is there any secret to cutting the vinyl insert on glass tops? I'm not a tool guy and a regular scissor doesn't work that well.

Sheet metal.shears work good, I use a sharp utility knife and a straight edge. Carefully!!!

IME the thickness of the plastic varies by manufacturer. The Aqueon brand required tin snips. The Marineland brand was much thinner. I believe I used regular scissors.

I think that I will pick up a sheet metal shears the next time that I visit Home Depot.
