You know what I used? An old screw from an 'elbow' (many players here I'm sure have never heard of such a thing in these days of clamping feednecks ...) I believe it was a VLbow, works great. The big end of that screw makes a great handle to pull the thing out, very easy.
You can even use pliers to grip the end of the elbow screw, since you won't be wrecking anything on your 'gat ... the screw sticks out about an inch.
Thought I'd mention that since lots of people tend to have useless old things like that rolling around in their gearbag
