Serpentine Stretch belt tool alternative

I was stuck at home on the final leg of replacing my water pump, thermostat, and belts. I watched the diy video, but there is no way you can get that stretch belt on with a screw driver. So, I started to google after tearing up my knuckles trying to get the stretch belt on. I found the following video, not sure if anyone posted already.

At Harbor Freight, purchase the fuel line clamp kit. It's like $7 plus tax. Cut it with a saw as shown. The only additional thing is I cut the plastic nob in half because it would not clear a hose bracket when turning. You don't have to have it on very tight as it is locked in there and you can turn the remaining plastic.
