I used a long cat hair I pulled out of the cat, and then dipped into Aluminum to make it conductive. Worked great without any scratching though the cat was a bit pissed off.

I tried a paperclip and it didnt work. Then used thicker speaker wire and it worked. Hope i didnt scatch my board as it took many attempts.
