Tool fell apart on first use.
- I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
The tool consists of a metal rod with a small rubber band and three small metal parts held around the metal rod with the rubber band. The rod goes through the bottom bracket and the three small metal part jam again the bottom bracket bearing. You then have to strike the metal rod with some force with a mallet and eventually the bottom bracket pops out. When I did this the metal rod flew across the garage and when it struck the floor the rubber band and the three small metal parts separated from the rod and I lost vital parts. The tool is no longer usable. The tool needs to be redesigned in a more fool proof way - at least in my case.
