Tool to hold intake pushrods on 5.7 workaround

Who has one? Did it work ok for you?

I ordered one and I didn't realize it was plastic until I opened it.   I sent it back.  Not worth $99.

I just folded up pieces of cardboard and slipped them between the rocker arm and the valve to keep pressure on the pushrods until I could gradually tighten the rocker shaft down.  Removed cardboard one at a time when the rocker arm was close enough to keep the pushrod in place.  Did a compression test on each cylinder just to make sure before I buttoned it up.
