    I don't like pulling hard on the entire valve assembly as it may not be anchored well. It can also affect how well the spout is sealed.
    What I always do is:
    Remove retaining nut.
    I then use a channel lacks sideways.
    I place the cartridge shaft in the inner portion of the jaws, positioning the end of the jaws against the valve body.
    Using the valve body for leverage, while holding the cartridge shaft securely, I gently pull the shaft out with the pliers.
    Never had it fail nor does it damage the valve body threads
