Well I found two one-cent coins from my last visit to the good ole US of A, on the assumption that I could try them before buying this. Really really do not do this. They both bent, and the inner one got horribly wedged into the hollow tube. It has taken me a couple of hours of messing about with metal rods to poke it out again. Having wasted two cents I am going to buy the proper Shimano thing.

Impossible to get your crank off without one of these. Does exactly what is says on the tin. Perfect..

Why screw around with coins when you can add this to your tool kit for pennies! Don't be confused by the picture. It's a lot shorter in real life and fit's a treat.

Bryan, you are a genius! I was going to buy one of these till reading your post. Using 2 * 1 cent coins (using only 1 coin, it began to deform slightly) I successfully removed the RaceFace crank on my Giant VT 2

Works like a charm on my Shimano FC-M445 Hollowtech Octalink. Much better than my previous attemps with coin technology :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Correction to my previous comment – it works perfectly with an ISIS bottom bracket that uses M15 XC Crank Bolts.
If you have M12 Crank Bolts (e.g. Truvativ GigaPipe DH) you’ll need a smaller plug tool.
