As this variable is optional (for the operation of the ls program),
there is no such tool. Except of course you consider your editor of
choice as such a tool, which edits _files_ that have an effect on
setting the variable. Or you can see the line editing feature of
your shell as such a means... as both are very user-friendly. ;-)

However, when you have set $LSCOLORS once, there is hardly any need
to change it several times a week. The color codes and the positional
parameters that form the variable's content can be found in "man ls".
Do some experimenting in your shell, and save the final result to
~/.login_conf or your shell's startup file, which in case of bash
is ~/.bashrc (for interactive shells; see section "INVOCATION" in
"man bash" for details).
