Default How to prop open blend door for heat to the floor?

My 08 does not blow any air to the floor, only to the defrost vents. I watched the video and the guy mentions that it is the mode 2 door that has failed. And that it is a VERY difficult job to fix properly.
In the video, he mentions that you can set the door open so that the air would blow 50/50 to the defrost vents and the floor. Is this as simple as sticking a really long screwdriver into the lower floor vent?
I'm hoping someone out there has done this already!

I just looked into this myself because im only getting heat if i set the switch halfway between max upper vents and upper vents. and when I put it on feet it blows defrost. and from what I got from a few shops the blend doors are pretty much dead center and if you over push the door you loose all of your defrost which is pretty dangerous. Iv gotta jump into re doing my blend doors and since the dash is coming out im doing the core and blower motor with it. Im just beating around the bush about it because i have a feeling my dash is just going to crumble. it already has 1 crack.
