    I have the third hand and love it ( highly recommend it-built solid and mine has been used a lot in the past 3+ years- still looks new). My favorite is my custom made limited edition grid lifter by Mike a fellow Egger. Erget just posted a thread on some custom spatulas he donated to the GA Eggfest.

    I use a pair of Sears Robo-Grip pliers.  Work like a charm...

    My daughter bought me THE BGE grill lifter, otherwise, i would have some jury-rigged gizmo, which will do the same job.  But although this seems like an expensive accessory, i must admit, when you latch onto a grill, say your cast iron grill, and it is 500 to 600 degrees - it IS nice to know "you have control of it, it doesn't have control of you"!!!  It's design is heavy duty and worth the money.

    I use the same thing and it works great. Sometimes simple is best and cheaper.
