Is it a plastic or is more like a hard silcon covering… it is usally just a silcon rubber to protect the bit… and you can just peel them off.

I’ve always just grabbed the plastic covering as far down the shank as possible, and torn it off. The plastic tears really easily/predictably so I don’t see much possibility of injury

I usually just pull it off, but if it’s stubborn you can always spin it and bury it in a piece of scrap wood.
