Found this video that shows how to make custom sized Z-bends.  You may have run into the problem with the off-the-shelf Z- bend pliers; the bend is too shallow for some applications.

Updated – After you measure the required control rod length, be sure to add 1/4″ for your first bend.  This extra length is needed to compensate for the Z-bend.

Watch the video to learn how to make custom sized Z-bends using a regular set of pliers.
