Spring Hook Tool: Push/Pull/Lifter Combo

Tool photo.

I picked up one of these years ago when I was working on tape recorders (audio/vidio) for replacing belts. Now I keep one in my kit and use it to manipulate all kinds of things in hard-to-reach places.
One end has a hook for grabbing and pulling. The other end is designed to push things around.
The tool is about 1/8" diameter and almost 8-1/2" long.

Tool is available online from HMC Electronics. But you can probably find it in your local electronics shop.
