6, 10" ,12. 5" ,13" 14" and 16" tire, so I'm assuming it will work on a 15" tire as well.
Strong and heavy, however, as is standard in China, the hole for the ball detent was not drilled on center, therefore the holding power of the ball was reduced. Detents don't produce the positive feel of a ball plunger instead they just kind of work but do not have as much hold as we would like. Additionally, the hinge pin was also drilled crooked, placing the hole right over the edge of one side of the head. This means that when the tool swings over, the hole is crooked as well, and this is obviously in a load-bearing zone. I'm not sure if it'll In other words, it would cost the same to make this tool the way that I did as it did to make it the way that I did. Reading all of the other reviews, I didn't expect the rubber rim guard to be as hard as it is. This item is made of high-quality materials, reminding me of Taiwan in the 1980's.
This isn't exactly the kind of tool everyone needs around the house, but it was an affordable way to get the job done properly for the price. Recent replacement of my lawn tractor's tires has been completed. Since I had them apart, I decided to replace the valve stems while I had them apart as well. Instead of using pliers or risk damage to the new stems, I bought this tool that makes it easy. Having spent the money on the tool, I'm confident that the valve stems are seated, in position, and undamaged, and I'm not worried about the tool breaking. My annoyance would be even greater if I had to disassemble another tire/wheel in order to replace a valve stem if I damaged the stem with pliers or some other form.
While I have a full complement of tools, I have never owned There is a lot of quality in this tool for a very low price. I think it is well worth the price and should be a must-have tool for any home mechanic. It takes less than a minute to install a stem with it. I like how effective this is!.
Effectively completes the task at hand. Because I work in the automotive industry, I wanted a spare at home for my own It would have been nice to have a arc or curve to the handles. It will be pointless to use a black rubber protector on this since the surface is flat and it is likely used on bigger tires than wheel tires. The valve stem does not need to be screwed into, but rather pulled onto the handle, defeating the purpose of the valve stem in the first.
there are better products out there at a lower price, it's poorly constructed, the ball detent doesn't work, the pin that holds the unit together is very weak, and it uses very poor machining skills. This is not a purchase I would make.
The product is hesitant to be purchased by a lot of people. It is necessary to state that the pivot point is held straight by a tiny detent which is bound to wear out and it will be floppy soon, but it is An insert is used to hold the end piece of the shaft in position while threading it into the valve stem. The product can be used in a dealership with no problems! This is a good recommendation!.
