A person could use a couple nails as far as that goes.
Hemostats would just be less fiddly and have matched size jaws. Many people donít have two screwdrivers of the same size. I donít...at least not that small.

Have you actually tried using one of those relatively flimsy things?
How clean were your hands after?
The jaws aren't going to open wide enough on a too long chain.
It doesn't HAVE TO BE screw drivers as I mentioned. Any pair of skinny rods, nails, welding electrodes, old coat hangar.....
Why purchase and bend/spring/ruin a new tool?
