My local bike mechanic suggested using one of these when truing my wheels with straight-pull spokes. When you try to adjust straight pull spokes (the ones with the nail-type head, as opposed to the J-hook), the spoke will simply turn with the nipple unless you hold the spoke steady. This tool holds the spoke without damaging it as pliers would. Also great for snugging cables, of course.
I was frustrated with my current fourth hand, sometimes the cable would become stuck . There was too much play in the channel where the cable comes in contact with the tool. Not so with the Hozan, it readily accepts the thinner shift cables too. I asked fellow diy mechanics online and this was their overwhelming choice.
