I'm looking to buy them on Amazon (and before you say, oh why don't you try switchjigs(dot)com, I did try that site but the order status page never got updated despite the fact the owner told me that the jig I ordered was going to go out on Monday and I couldn't get in contact with him after that, so maybe he's a decent seller but I kinda need one sooner than later so...) and I came across what looks to be some "decent" jigs, any ideas if these two are any good or not?

(So I can't link them huh, fine I'll just copy their name over and they should be searchable on amazon(dot)ca)

First one is "RCM Joy-Con Jig, Cochanvie RCM (Recovery Mode) Clip NS SX PRO OS Crack Tools RCM Clip Short Connector for Nintendo Switch Archive Modification (Not 3D-Printed Version, Better Quality)"

Second one is "XBERSTAR New Improved SX OS 3D Printed for Nintendo Switch Crack RCM NS Shorter JIG kits"

Do you really need one? I entered only one time manually in RCM mode with a paperclip made by me. After that install autorcm and never use the paperclip/jig again. If you are careful you certainly don't damage the switch for only one time.

Tried with a copper wire, and couldn't get it to work (I think I'm just to scared and I keep doing it wrong to the point where the wire doesn't even touch the pins) and I don't got any paperclips or tinfoil in the house and if the jigs are premade they'll most likely work better than doing a paperclip myself.

My soldering skills aren't really up to par, and I don't have the triangle protective screwdriver/bit I need to open up the joycon controller.
