Best way to stretch the neck gasket of a drysuit?

I was thinking about sticking a soccer ball in it and pumping it up.

How do you do this?

I've always stuck a coffee can in my neck gaskets to stretch them out. Works really well.

I like your soccer ball idea.
If you're going to stick it out there, don't be afraid to get it cut off.
