I swapped my summer tires off last week. They are stacked up in my kitchen at this very moment, and I pulled the caps yesterday to clean them, so I'm confident this is the correct answer.
To remove the caps, it's best to have the wheel off the rotor. Easier to push in the tabs that way. Otherwise you'd need to use a screwdriver or something else that would scratch the wheel.
But to insert the caps, you just push them in from the outside.
