I don’t like writing negative reviews but this time I have to. I like a good deal as much as anyone else but when it when you can’t even get a single use before it breaks... it is not such a good deal. The surprising thing is I was barely pulling on the thing and the wire just snapped. I had to look again to make sure it was actually a wire and not string. Very weak materials.

I don't know why it has taken me so long to buy this! This is a cheap tool, that pays for its self, the first time you use it.
As a valve puller, it makes the job of getting a valve in SO easy. No more killing my fingers trying to get the valve through the rim. On the other hand, the valve stem remover part is annoying because it comes unthreaded while trying to use.
If you change your own tires, it can some times be tricky getting the valve stem into the rim, this helps a ton! WIth my experience now, I only use the tool as a valve core remover, but if you don't change tires real often, this is a huge help
This just simply works. Just remember to remove valve core of old tube and thread this in to have it routed and ready for the new tube. Not necessary, but it sure is nice. Saves me about 5 minutes, a salvo of foul language, and some pinched knuckles.
When trying to unscrew the valve core, this tool broke making it usless. Don't buy.
I do my own tires, i do my kids' tires, I do my buddies tires, that amounts to 50+ tires mounts a year. I heard about this little thing, and thought it was a great idea so I said,:"what the hay, I'll try it."
It was a real treat, once I thread locked the valve stem tool. I dropped that thing 10 times, in the dirt, once I securesd that little bugger my tire changing experience was like a dream.
THREAD LOCK THE VALVE STEM TOOL!!!!!
it does make it easier but 2 things could be improved. the cable is pretty thin and the way it works is you have to take out the guts of the valve stem to put it in but the tool unscrews itself if you try to use it to do that. other than that its very nice, no pinched fingures
I broke this the first time I used but I have fixed it and it hasn't broke since.
I bought this tool beacuse I lost my old one. My old one was much, much better. But this one works for now. It doesnt work good for pulling the valves out. I just use it to pull the stems thru the rim when changing tires.
