Filter Step Up Rings

I am looking for a GOOD step up ring for 82mm filter on a 77mm Lens. I am using Polar Pro filters and already have a brass Luzid step up ring. This thing will instantly lock onto the filter as soon as it bottoms out and makes the slightest contact on the filter surface. Only way I can remove it is to keep it under a hot lamp until it expands just enough to release. I have looked at multiple step up rings on BH site and there is not a single one that does not have reviews claiming they stick as well,, including the very expensive ones. What are some suggestions as to what works or provides a suitable solution to solve this problem short of coating the surface with oil or grease as I am not really keen on doing it that close to my glass.
