    Pull it out with a piece of masking tape or suck it out with a vacuum.

    Plan A
    Tape with strong glue. (gaffer or similar)
    Apply to dent.... and pull.... fast...

    Plan B
    You don't want to know... just make Plan A work.....

    And don't forget....
    you can just always leave it as it is..

    Depending on how badly it's dented a piece of Scotch tape might pull it out.

    All good suggestions above. When those have failed Ive used a pin that I "rolled the end over" very slightly by tapping on it making a tiny barb. This works on screen type only though. Bob

    I use a small had vac. That's it, takes longer to plug it in.

    If it's metal...not much can be done.

    If it's fiber...bend the very tip of a needle with some needlenose pliers to just past a 90* angle...insert and pull the dent out.
