They make a pull bar. It goes over the edge and you hit it with a hammer. Make sure you protect your floor underneath the pull bar when you hit it. Home Depot sells them. It will be obvious when you see it.

I call that my slapper. I rarely use it though.
Looks like a Z. or really an L with a top on it. Besure to step on it as you hit it with the hammer.

One of those flat prybar/nail bars. I use it to pry with sideways in the expansion. Then slap the plank with the palm of my hand a couple of times and "click".
