    Get the tool from Fisher. Still be very careful. I usually wrap them with wire as and extra safety. Lots of energy in just compressing them the inch needed to get them in.

    You can slowly drive up to a tree, one you don't care about preferably, and slowing drive into it with the blade raised all the way. This trips the edge and you can do what you have to do. Just put it in park and put on the parking brake.

    just get the tool. and as stated above use a steel wire to hold it compressed in. ive seen those thing slip and they move with a **** load of force even just compressing them the 1-2 inches to get them in if it sips it can easily break bones.
