Tool for lifting end of bar

Does anyone know where, in the UK, we can get one of the single (preferably) or double (if no other choice) devices used to lever the end of a barbell of the floor so it is easier to load weight on them? New, made or secondhand. They have a short arm with a hook which you push into the barbell and then a long lever set at a right angle to the first. The corner of the outside angle is usually rounded and the whole thing tips back to that the bar comes up.

    using a 2.5KG plate is fine for a few changes but if you are swapping loads of weights around (say for a comp) it will tire you out very quickly

    Yeah I saw that one and sent a copy to Watson's but the one I saw years back was even more simple. Mike suggested a jack - just seems like overkill...
