    If your talking about not using magnets, bamboo skewers work great. Slide the tip between the couplers and twist the skewer.

    I use a penlight with a toothpick fixed by some scotchtape.
    Here is a picture.
    I have a small switching layout, so I use that tool quite often.

    It is named " The Tool" ( patent pending )
