The X-Tools star nut installer is a well thought out tool by bikers for bikers. No more hitting your fingers with a hammer as you try to install the star nut, simply thread the nut onto the internal bar, feed the bar through the outer sleeve and place over your steer tube and tap in with a hammer.
Suitable for 1" & 1 1/8" steer tubes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Masatomo Almost perfect
Well, the material seems pretty good and it does its job. Only problems are that there's an additional piece of plastic which I don't really understand what it's for (instructions don't mention it) and that it's not clear when to stop banging with the hammer because there's no visual clue as to when the star nut is completely in position, therefore you might keep on banging (like I did) until I stopped to take a look (the main piece is inside a black tube in order to keep it aligned, so you don't see it). Maybe some sort of hole in the black tube at the fork level might be useful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jsl23 Does the job with no fuss
I have installed a few star-nuts with this tool now. Each time it does the job and the star-nut is pushed in straight and to the correct depth with no problems.
You just need to add a rubber mallet to whack the pin down with.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bax33 Does the job and doesn't cost an arm and a leg.
Really not worth scrimping when dealing with an expensive item like a fork. This doesn't cost much and does the job well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Edward1994 Good Value, Great Tool
Another great product by X-Tools. I normally only by Park tool but their equialient product is ridicolously over priced. Admitedly the build quality of the tool isn't fantastic (plastic coated metal) however from a functionality point of view- flawless!
