I made one of the tools from scrap and it works great. I made one change by cut with a saw a grove in one side at each top grove helps hold the wire in place. I also pebend with plires the wireto a ninty degree then bend the other side down. Works good for those odd size grabs like on the ends of PRR H21 and GLa (Iam an SPF) hopper cars.

As for "Christmas" trees, Ben Stein's opinion is illuminating- -
"Next confession: I am a Jew, and every single one of my ancestors was Jewish. And it does not bother me even a little bit when people call those beautiful lit up, bejeweled trees Christmas trees. I don't feel threatened. I don't feel discriminated against. That's what they are: Christmas trees. It doesn't bother me a bit when people say, "Merry Christmas" to me. I don't think they are slighting me or getting ready to put me in a ghetto. In fact, I kind of like it. It shows that we are all brothers and sisters celebrating this happy time of year. It doesn't bother me at all that there is a manger scene on display at a key intersection near my beach house in Malibu. If people want a creche, it's just as fine with me as is the Menorah a few hundred yards away."
