The key is surprisingly soft, and the screw driver blade may actually mar the key some. Easy to fix when you get it out with a file or a whetstone.

Biggest worry extracting or reinserting these is having it fall out. Rags where the chains enter the case, and more generally to avoid hunting around on bench or floor.

Channel locks do the job squeezing them back in when you are finishing up your work - you can get them flush and level, though just a hair lower on the front works to help get the adjustment collar started over the key.
The cam is hard enough that the channel locks won't mar the surface, which doesn't have anything rotating on it anyway.
