Thumb Spring Removal "Tool(s)"

I don't recall if it was this thread or not, but someone suggested using washers to fill the spaces between turns in a spring, compressing the shaft (whatever the spring was springing), and just removing the spring simply that way - without it shooting off into space. I finally got to try it, and thought the pictures may be helpful:

Before (springs packed with coins, now kickstand moved to shorten spring length)



After (Spring conveniently removed, with coins still packed, ready to reattach later with minimal problem)
