It features one-hand operation with a thumb lock to hold the cable tight while your hand is freed up to tighten pull-up bolts and nuts. A must for any shop, home or professional.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Quick easy adjustment
Having the ability to adjust the gears and cable brakes on my road bike and the gears on my mountainbikes with speed and efficiency has been invaluable, especially as the wet summer has meant cable maintenance has been constant.
Simple to use and alot better than struggling with allen keys and fingers all mixed up in a greasy mess as your gears don't run smoothly.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Anonymous handy, but not essential
The main gripe I have with this is you can only pull the cable so far before the tool itself begins pinching the cable. Other than that its nice to set this on lock whilst tinkering with the rest.
A very handy tool but not essential
