An oldie, but a goodie!
Extending a tension spring so it can be easily installed on it's retainer pins.
Bend the spring to one side and insert a coin or washer. Bend the other direction and do the same until the spring has extended to an easier installation length.
Back in the day I would pull the springs into place wit a pair of vice grips. many times slipping lose and neatly removing skin from my knuckles!!!!
