Question Oil filter wrench?

On my car I like to use tge K&N PS-2010 filters.
I don't like using anything else but damm they are quite a hassle to take off with the traditional loop wrench.

So im wondering if anyone knows an easier way to get them off. Tired of that wrench slipping all the time.
I want to buy one of those oil filter caps but no one makes a 93mm version with 12 flutes.

Any suggestions?

Use a rubber strap wrench. Should be able to get one at just about any hardware/tool store

Thanks for the suggestion but that won't work because the PS-2010 is smooth.

I use a pair of large channel locks and it does a great job getting oil filters loose plus you can use it on other things too and not just an oil filter.

I use the K&N filters with the 1" nut welded to the end. You can use a socket with an extension to reach.
