Wire cutters work just fine for this application...I used them and had no problems!

I also used wire cutters and it worked fine. Just hold them close to the end where you are cutting. If you are having problems using them, it may be you need sharper wire cutters. The green mesh snips real easy. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/thumb.gif" alt="" />

we use 2 things- if I'm not worried about the ends catching or detailed cuts I use tin snips... if I am worried I use a pair of diaganol cutters on each edge.....
