Park's Valve Core Tool is great for tightening, removing and installing Schrader and Presta valve cores (the cores are inside the valve), and also Presta valve extenders that have 5mm wrench flats. It's a handy tool to save a tube when all that's wrong is a broken valve, and it also lets you remove valves to easily insert sealant.
A right tool is needed for a hassle-free work. This is the tool for a valve removal. Contrary to what mentioned in another review, it can do the job between spokes. There is a socket at the end that accepts the top of the valve. And you use the tool like you do a screwdriver instead of a wrench.
Bottom LineYes, I would recommend this to a friend
Got it primarily to remove cores from tubeless tire valves.
Problem is that it is too long and hits the spokes because it was designed for working with tubes that were off the wheel.
Looks nice otherwise.
Bottom LineNo, I would not recommend this to a friend
