Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.Rated 5 out of 5 by TheHalfordsReviewer XLC TO-S14 Freewheel Remover Tool NOT a Cassette Remover Tool! Firstly this item is a freewheel remover tool, not a cassette remover tool like the other reviewers have unfortunately and incorrectly said. There is a difference between the two, a quick difference is that freewheel tool has a longer spline and the cassette tool has shorter splines. I wasn't sure if this would fit a freewheel as by looking at the image the splines are thinner but thicker in depth, the other freewheel tools I had seen have splines more spread out and thinner than this tool but after reserving the item online, as it's a web exclusive, and paying in store I can confirm it fits a Shimano MF freewheel completely fine. The item comes attached on a size A6 like cardboard with the tool held in by a cable tie. The item itself states that it works with Shimano MF freewheels and it does but doesn't state if it works with any other makes of freewheels though. Using an adjustable wrench and turning anti-clockwise it took a freewheel off which was on a bike for over a decade, but only after much force being used and that means a lot!!! The item has a good quality finish to it too. It has a rugged black shiny and sparkling material finish on it and the XLC logo on it looks good too. The item also has a though hole where the axle fits through, spacers and locknut so there was no need to remove anything else, just the freewheel which was helpful. I got this item on offer and for less than about two cups of coffee this definitely makes a task such as freewheel removal and fitting easier to do. 24 April 2016Rated 4 out of 5 by Tricky321 Performs its function perfectly A simple easy to use tool. I have used it to remove Shimano casettes and it worked fine. 08 November 2014Rated 5 out of 5 by lughole easy to use. Well made and easy to use when removing the cassette from the rear wheel. 30 January 2014Rated 5 out of 5 by kieth27 Essential freewheel socket This product is an essential tool for removing a gear cassette. Well made, the splines are long and uniform that give an EXACT fit in the cassette retaining ring. I would definitely recommend this product based on quality and price. 05 December 20131-4 of 4
