Pros:
easely removes the oilfilters from your car with this size filters. fit is great, will not damage the filters or anything around the filter on tight cars where usual spanner type tools work poorly.
Cons:
the welding/fastening on the metal part where the wrench is connected looks weak as only spotwelded in 4 small spots. if fails would be simple reweld it if so as all metal.
Other:
havent tested it on any stuck filters yet, done 4 car now with it and it works fine. if the welds do fail welding a extention or a regular socket in its place would make it even better, nearly hopeing it fail so could do it :-) would simplyfy as not needing the adapter.
Bottomline:
great product that works extremly well. price could be a little less, as same price as local autoshop for same thing, but theres are made in plastic. i have used the plastic ones for a loong time, it finnaly broke on a stuck oilfilter. this metal tool feels sturdier, and is reparable if fails as a major pro! good stuff !
