Really?

Yes - that Heavy-Duty, although fairly short, spring that is placed just beneath that Lock Plate.
. My buddy @ Advance didn't have anything that would do that. I've been checking around. But only come up empty-handed.

I'll keep trying !
Thanks. Again ! !

Honestly. I think there is.
Don't usually use them and had forgotten about them.

. I'll contact them and see if they have that Tool for Rent/Sale.

THANKS!
