Question Tool to open clevis?

Years ago someone came up with a simple tool for opening a clevis. Just getting back in the hobby but can't recall what it was like. I tried a search here and Tips with no success.

I know if you can get in from the side, you can use a small blade screwdriver. In this case, I am trying to install and remove clevises on the servo arms in the plane with minimal side access.

BVMJets.com has a rather expensive plier-like tool. AMain hobbies has a very inexpensive tool.

If you have the space you may use one of these. I have one narrower than this one. Just handle and bit. Gets into tight spots. I’ve cut bits too. Can’t remember where I got it. Probably HF long ago.

You can also bend some flat stock to a right angle. L shape. Slide into clevis and rotate handle. May work.
