Componennt testing

I have some SOT23 packaged fets i would like to test prior to soldering.
I can bareley see them let alone get a mprobe on them , any suggestions please that do not include expensive holders.

Well, I don't know what is expensive to you, but these might work : 1 pair Single Hook Clip Mini Grabber Test Probe for SMD IC Multimeter 2.3" new | eBay

Got those but they just ping off, 6 pin devices i cant get on middle pin.

Peg idea looks promisin , ill try etching a pcb later as a contact.
