Plastic tool

I saw a UTube video that had a plastic/Nylon type of tool with hole in middle that is used to hold down the spring to insert the metal like key back in the hole. It was about 1 1/2" wide and about 4" long and one end had was cut at an angle to use in cleaning the magazine. Please post to this email if you know where to purchase one?
Thanks,
J

Haven't see one of those. I'm not sure what it does. Disassembly of magazines isn't that difficult. Please elaborate.

Push the top of the magazine catch down with a pen a little over half way and place a small Allen wrench through one of the mag holes and that will hold the mag spring in place. Remove the catcher and carefully pull the Allen wrench out with your hand on top of the mag and slowly let the spring extend out..{p.s...note the position of how the spring comes out because it has to go back in exactly the same}
