Coat Hanger works best if it's one of the fairly heavy wire types.  File
the cut ends flat too.  The ends are pushing flaps with prongs that slip
into holes to hold the radio in place.  You don't need to disconnect the
power until you have it out enough to know whether you have the code for it
if the code has been scrawled onto the radio.
