If you have a bench grinder and screw driver you don't really like, you can round off the tip.

True, you can try to straighten the crosses as you tension them, but if you do a lot of rackets, your finger tips will hurt after a while. Unless you have guitar player's callouses.
i just use my fingers. for me its crucial to do this with prestiges because of the pattern.
