You will have to make those bends in your new suspension rod. You can use a 5/8" dowel (or steel) rod to make the big curve and pliers to make the 90 degree bends where the curve stops. When you sight down the wire the top and bottom straight parts should be in alignment. The 'eye' at the bottom can be made using a similar method and a 1/4" rod.

Note, a good pair of large round nose pliers makes this job a lot easier and be sure to leave your new rod on the long side. You can always shorten it a bit if necessary.

The straight rods from Timesavers can be formed using this jig...


EDIT; the link is to walmart dot com, but it apparently doesn't like the preview feature of the Forum
