3rd, 4th or what ever hand tool it is helps
Your local bike or scooter shop sell 3rd hand tools or your friendly internet store. Mine is a Hazzo. Pedro is another good brand. Expect to pay $25. Note: using a Dremel or another device for the certain thick cables on some bikes you will need make a grind line where the cable runs and gets pinched (see photo: it's the right arm only). I understand hardcore cyclist don't use this tool and mock it, but hey we're scooterists. Ain't no shame! With a ratchet and a 3rd hand tool I was done in 3 minutes as opposed to being clumsy with pliers and having my wife hold the brake in while I tighten.
