DIY tension lock uncupler

Recently felt the need to "upgrade" my layout and decided to make my own uncouplers. Instead on spending 5 pounds each on uncouplers (FYI I live thousands and thousands of KM away from UK, this is actually a very cost effective way of doing things. Don't mention shipping costs, they're crazy) 
Easily, you could use a plastic sheet or a some cereal box paper and cut them to size, not too long not too short (you'll have a hard time with a short uncoupler and the length of track is way too short for a long uncoupler and it's impractical to begin with) 
Don't make it too wide, you'll cause the trains and coaches to derail as well. 
Best of all, it's entirely free. 
Now, you can enjoy your layout with lots of shunting activities. I'm still slowly expanding my layout to include more sidings and more coaches to come. Hopefully to add new locomotives including diesels and shunters. Also, I can't wait to get my hands on another Hornby TTS locomotives especially the legendary Flying Scotsman. But as the economy slowly drops from good to not-so-good, I'd have to put these ideas on hold for the time being.

I got mine 35/1000

How good does it run I hear you ask?

It runs good however it does have some squeeking issues especially at shunting speeds only in the forward direction. It’s a good runner nevertheless.
