The official tools have little barbs at the ends - you could cut a slot in the 
end of the coathanger wire to simulate this, if you were really bothered.

The tools are freely available in the UK, hanging in car parts shops in blister 
packs.  I also saw a neat set of 6mm screwdriver bits last week, made by 
Kawasaki and designed to undo every kind of "tamper-proof" fastener known to 
engineering.  Torx screws with centre posts, three-pronged crosshead screws, 
spiral-bladed crossheads, etc.

Wonderful little kit.
