To what Mo said, especially putting rags to block the oil return holes to keep the keepers for going "walk-a-about" into inconvenient places of the engine.

Also, during assembly, using a touch of grease on keeper to "stick" it to valve stem works wonders in keeping them in place as you release the valve compression tool.

Finally, it helps in both removing and installing the valve to have rotate the engine to close valve you are compressing with the tool. When the valve is closed the spring pressure the compressor has to overcome is lower. Otherwise you may notice your tool may start to bend. Not, that has ever happened to me... but I have a 'friend'....
