JeremyGreat product and nice quality
Mr KeyGreat tool and nice & cheap.
Mr eskicisimple and usefull. just use it.
RoyQuality is good.
DavieHandy little tool gets the job done
TalGreat little tool. It's cheap, it fits, it works.
AlexALittle to say really, does the job if your preload bolt hasn’t been overtightened. If it has, you will find the ergonomics awful, I’d rather Shimano made it in alloy with a hex interface for those of us who might be ham-fisted.
RazvanVery useful tool and at a affordable price.
Mr V Bishunhandy to have for home repairs.
AustinHandy little tool to nip up the fixing bolt on Shimano cranks. Prevents over tightening as it’s just a hand tool. Cheap and simple but gets the job done.
StephenSimple tool which does the job should probably be included when you buy a crank
Mr HuynhWorks exactly as described and is just simple a good tool to have.
Mr DiMennaWorked good and as intended. Would be nice if it had a fitting for a 1/4” torque wrench.
Mr GrahamCheapest place for genuine shimano part....does the job fine
Mr KinnaneLucky I bought this tool. I had a cheap bike repair set but the crank instillation tool did not fit the new ultegra crankset as it was hex shaped so I could only remove the gossimer crank. This tool allowed me to get the ultegra crank on. The plastic is of good quality however a small handle would allow better leverage. Perhaps they want to limit how much you torque up. Still can't complain. It works.
J FalsafiGot this to fit my new left crank power meter, did the job just fine.
SimoWillBasic item, but essential if you're bulding/maintaining/upgrading. Does the job it's supposed to do, can't ask for more.
RVHNot much you can say here. Nice little hand tool to seat your crank arm. It works fine.
Mr ReyesSturdy. Made it a breeze to take the crank cap off.
StephenAn inexpensive tool to do the job right
Sir LoureiroSimple and efficient
RyanGreat tool, nice and cheap to take off the left 105 5800 crank arm on my Canyon Endurace.
AndréA simple but essential tool.
Stanley WongExcellent quality from Shimano as usual. Great tool at reasonable price
Lorelaybuena enramienta buen funcionamiento
LindenWorked as expected and allowed me to take off the cranks.
AdamWorks perfectly to tighten and loosen the hollowtech cranks. Hard enough plastic that I think it will last a while
Mr ImparaWorks fine; while the Park tool has a better grip this does the job.
Mr GreenhalghDespite being plastic, the tool does the job as required. The service from Merlin, as always, was superb and the product was despatched without delay and received the next day,
Dave IAn essential tool to remove the crank arm. It has been well made in the precision plastic mold. Will definitely bequeath this to my son as a modern heirloom.
Mr NeathThis might not look like much but it's worth its weight in gold when installing/adjusting the Shimano chainset. Glad I'd bought it when replacing SLX M660 chainset!
Mr christianCheap little piece of plastic which does exactly what its supposed to do with no fuss so why pay more? Made swapping chainset easy
Mr Scale60Fits perfectly and does the job. Easy to loose because it's plastic and small so keep it stored in a safe place.
Mr SimeonsA nifty little piece that you certainly need to extract and refit the hollow tech II bottom bracket. However, with it being so small is can be easily misplaced which is annoying. Perhaps a better choice would be the Park tool (Park BBT-9 Hollowtech 2 Bottom Bracket Tool) which encorporates the TLFC32 and the TLFC16 in one handy unit. It does what it is designed to do and the outlay of purchasing the TLFC32 and the TLFC16 will be less than the Park tool. Your decision in the end.
Mr SARICAUseful tool for shimano crankarms.
Mr McPhailCheap easy to use and does exactly what its supposed to. Very cheap aswell
Mr morrisworks well
Mr RoperDoes the job.
Mr ThurstonHandy tool for the do-it yourself kind of person. great price. Arrived in perfect condition
Mr JonesDoes what it is designed for .Grate service.
Mr ProudDoes the job but needs a bigger grip really.
