Fuel Line Disconnect Tool

Who makes the best tool for disconnecting the fuel lines into the fuel filter on a Ranger 3.0L FFV?

I don't remember what brand mine is but I don't recommend the style that has an outer circle around it that encases the fuel line. They can be very difficult if not impossible to use in certain places.

I modified a few of them by cutting and rewelding them.

First one, I think I have 4 of them, cut and welded so they fit different angles. I didn't know they were that expensive. I get most of my snap on tools for free.

Damn it would have to be something like that. I was hoping there was a way I could score some free tools.
