mac, I started out "hooking" them with a homemade version made out of a eye screw.......But found that there is nothing simpler and easily accessible as a screw driver....

Curt, I tried the screwdriver method last night and had 2 shafts with a big curve in them straight in a few minutes. Got another that bends 2 ways and I got it better. With a little work it'll be right tonight. Thanks for the idea. I haave tried to use a hook before and pretty much lost interest because I only made them worse.
