So yes brandon, he made it for himself.
To the OP, I would suggest just curving the tube into a half moon shape to help get proper angles. Once you get the tube around the corner, it's just a matter of putting it in the hole.
The steel stylet is not necessary with the glidescope. It's an optional accessory that is designed to make it even easier.

What are you using for the pediatric rigid stylet?
I typically use a malleable stylet bent to the shape of the blade when using VL with great success. If I have difficulty passing the tube due to the acute angle then I'll have someone pull the stylet back a couple of inches to improve the flexibility of the distal tip. What size kiddo are you trying to use the Glidescope's #3 blade on? That might be a mouthful of blade that would be make the VL more of an impediment then an aide.
