Rated 5 out of 5 by Keeeee Very good but be carefull
Ok, heres the thing. My ojective was to remove my 10 year old bottom bracket which had never been used since I bought the bike.
I bought this bottom bracket tool and the park tool crank remover.
This product is a glorified bolt really, just with the splines to take out the bottom bracket.
Things in its favour:
- Good quality material. Fello cyclists - DO NOT BE TEMPTED TO BUY LOW QUALITY TOOLS. They will just crumble and are not worth the few euros you save.
- It does what its designed to do. I cant really complain since it is another park tool which was able to remove the bb.
- A bit pricey
- I have to sympathise with the guy that put 2 stars and the others commenting on the fact that it slips out of the splines. My bb hadnt been removed in 10 years so you can imagine the pressure needed to remove it, so it did slip a lot and i even needed to buy a new bigger adjustable spanner to get more fulcrum.
You sort of have to hold in the bb removal tool as best you can while nearly applying all your body weight on the spanner to turn it.

This is well made tool and gives good engagement in the old screw in bottom bracket lock rings. Splines are long enough so you can lean on it a bit if you need to without it slipping out.

I used this to remove a neglected, rusty, cheap BB from my frame. I was concerned that I might damage the splines in the process, but I had no need to worry - the tool engaged the BB splines well, and when used with a full-length socket wrench, the BB unscrewed easily.
Excellent quality. Highly recommend.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Anonymous Top quality and much better than the Shimano equivalent in that the teeth engage fully into the splines and there is a larger surface area to attach your adjustable wrench. Works well with the Pedros BB socket holder. Using both - and plenty of plusgas - I've been able to remove a seized BB without resorting to my LBS. Highly recommended

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Use a longer screw
First, insert this into your BB spline then get a long screw with the same thread as your crank screw and screw into the crank, that way the park BB tool wont come falling off. Like the other reviewer says it get the other expensive BB tool which can screw on to your crank, this is Park Tool costs cutting strategy (save production on supplying the screw). But still is Made in USA.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Anonymous If you have a problem with it popping out or stripping splines then clamp it on with a G-clamp... I had to weld a 4ft 1"x2" length of steel box (no flex in there) onto mine (one without a square drive) to shift the BB and G-clamping it did the trick!!
