Brake pad spreader?

I have always used a common old C-clamp to push the piston back into the caliper assembly. It seems to work quite well.

I have never done a brake job on a Mercedes, though. Will a c-clamp work, or should I be on the lookout for the thing that looks like a scissors-jack?

What do you call it, by the way?
