You don't need anything special for these, just wind them in with a pair of needle nose pliers.

You don't need much pressure, they should wind back easily, you certainly don't want to be pushing the piston back in.  The caliper is probably seized if it won't wind back.  You can try putting a lever into the pliers for more leverage, long screwdriver or similar.
