true release could be hard pending the design, however i would disagree in going for a reguler tong.
if your a metal worker or have a talent for engeneering then i say go for it, best case scenario you create a new item that may or may not catch on, but one you can call your own and the community will spend countless days modifying for individual needs.
worst case scenario, you learn one way it wont work, and edision didnt make a working light bulb his first try.
