With top-opening cages, I used to carefully remove as much cage furniture as possible so they didn't have anywhere to hide. I did this while keeping the screen top covering as much of the opening as possible. Then I would herd them into an open kritter keeper. They don't like to cooperate, but I never had one drop a tail.

Now that I have a front opening vivarium with permanent plants and non-removable wood, I dread having to try rounding Bowser up. Best luck has come from from curling a hand around him enough to get him to bite me. Once they latch on, you can move them with ease.
