I usually try to work slowly from both ends. Do the manufacturers specify a maximum number of insertion/extraction cycles? I looked at a couple random datasheets but didn't see anything. I use ZIF sockets on a couple target boards and they are certainly the way to go if you need to program a bunch of chips or whatever.
