I see that many of the new trainers come with an additional skewer to change out your existing rear wheel so you don't scratch/damage yours. Is it hard to change? It would seem as simple as unscrewing the cap and removing it. Is it that simple or am I missing something? I have skewers from an older bike I'd like to use on my new wheels for my trainer.

Not losing the springs is the only hard part. I understand that there's a company that makes skewers with the springs captive against the ends. I've also been guilty of accidently putting the springs on backwards after reinstalling a skewer.
