I'm a complete sucker for tools and the right tool makes the job so much easier, but that is not to say you need to buy this. Get a 1/2 or 3/8 inch drive extension and use the end that goes on the ratchet against the inner ring of the cup and tap it, working round as you tap. Will come out in two rotations with no damage.
If you're going to invest in a headset tool, get a press or a bearing driver for the nice shiny new one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by CycleDoctor The right tool for the job
Does what it should, very light, well made. I tried to use some copper pipe cut with a hacksaw and splayed out, got one cup out then gave up. This works great, I do wish it would work with 1 inch cups though.

You pay half of a price of removers from other brands, but quality is not compromised. Despite it is told, that you can use it for 1 1/8" headsets, it perfectly works for 1.5" ones too, tested that on two bikes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Excellent tool, cheaper than others
At first, cup remover itself is very simple, low-tech tool. It's hard to create bad one. This one is cheaper, than some other brands, but works perfectly well. By the way, although it is stated to be 1 1/8 only, I've also removed 1 1/5 (49 mm headtube) cups without any issues and any damage to cups or tube.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Anonymous works well. but I dropped mine by accident and one of the prongs bent outwards. bit fragile.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous Efficace mais cher quand même ...
Voici un outil qui remplit parfaitement son rôle.
On l'insère assez facilement et en quelques secondes on retire la cuvette du vélo en quelques coups de marteau.
Par contre,niveau prix, c'est quand même exagéré pour un simple tube d'acier.
Dommage car c'est réellement pratique à l'utilisation.

Like the X-Tools range. They're great value and do the job well. No exception here. Much better using this than a screwdriver!
