Default Selecting start of clip with Smart Tool


I'm noticing that it's a little tricky to select the start of a clip while the Smart tool is selected because the tool always wants to either be a fader tool or a trimmer tool unless I zoom in quite a bit first. Is there some modifier key I should be holding down in order to ensure that the tool stays as the selector tool while at the start of the clip if desired?

If not, then I suppose my options are to either switch to the Selector-only tool first before selecting (and then switching back to Smart tool after, which seems a little tedious), select somewhere a little further in from the start and then use Nudge backwards, or I must zoom in first before trying to select the near start of my clip, which also seems a little tedious. The first option isn't too terrible since the middle mouse button shortcut switches between the tools pretty quickly of course, but the less necessary button clicks for me, the better.

Thanks in advance!
