You can make your own clip tool very easily with a piece of unistrut. Cut a piece from an 1 1/2 inch Unistrut and brake to match the profile of the clips then weld on a handle to suit.

Default cleat banger tools

I've used the store bought cleat banger tools. I've used modified store bought tools. I've used hand built tools. I've got a buddy that uses a fence plier/hammer tool. For me, Channelocks are the best tool for bangin cleats over and you can pinch them closed or hammer them on with the backside. Channelocks also work well for setting and pinching the corners in TDC.
