I made my own from a set of vise grips. Hog ring pliers would come in handy, too.
I ground the jaws smooth with a curve in them. The advantage of vise grips is that you can apply a lot more pressure to the wrap than you can with just your hand. Also, the jaws are now very narrow and can get into tight places very easily.
You often find wraps that have been squashed nearly flat by owners or repairmen trying to tighten up loose cages. I round them out with my tool if required.

The hurricane passed with just some rain, fortunately. We dodged yet another bullet.

Cheers,
