valve lapping

Anyone have any good tips for an old man trying to keep the damn tool on the valve when lapping them?

I'm assuming you're using the suction cup on a handle type tool I've always had the best luck cleaning the valve and the suction cup, add some oil, and gently push the suction cup on. It can be tough sometimes! Good luck. Steve
