Best way there is!
It's plain old steel beaded chain, like for a pull-chain fixture. I has to be steel for the magnet to grab. Stainless, aluminum or brass is out if you want to use a magnet.That's a great setup! I guess I was thinking more of using the pliers for simpler wire runs (than corners etc). Most of the time on those I can get the tape close enough to grab I just need something that can reach in and get it.
Is that chain made for tapes (i.e. higher quality)? The reason I ask is because I was wondering if the regular chain like that could handle being pulled on?
Snips and needle-nose. You cut off the eye and as much of the shank as possible, then pull it through from the barb end.
... Oh. Fish tape. That's different. Never mind.
