- Shimano TLFC16 tool for the installation of Hollowtech 2 crank arms.
Tal Great little tool. It's cheap, it fits, it works.
AlexA Little 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.
Razvan Very useful tool and at a affordable price.
Mr V Bishun handy to have for home repairs.
Austin Handy 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.
Stephen Simple tool which does the job should probably be included when you buy a crank
Mr Huynh Works exactly as described and is just simple a good tool to have.
Mr DiMenna Worked good and as intended. Would be nice if it had a fitting for a 1/4” torque wrench.
Mr Graham Cheapest place for genuine shimano part....does the job fine
Mr Kinnane Lucky 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 Falsafi Got this to fit my new left crank power meter, did the job just fine.
SimoWill Basic item, but essential if you're bulding/maintaining/upgrading. Does the job it's supposed to do, can't ask for more.
RVH Not much you can say here. Nice little hand tool to seat your crank arm. It works fine.
Mr Reyes Sturdy. Made it a breeze to take the crank cap off.
Stephen An inexpensive tool to do the job right
Sir Loureiro Simple and efficient
Ryan Great tool, nice and cheap to take off the left 105 5800 crank arm on my Canyon Endurace.
André A simple but essential tool.
Stanley Wong Excellent quality from Shimano as usual. Great tool at reasonable price
Lorelay buena enramienta buen funcionamiento
Linden Worked as expected and allowed me to take off the cranks.
Adam Works perfectly to tighten and loosen the hollowtech cranks. Hard enough plastic that I think it will last a while
Mr Impara Works fine; while the Park tool has a better grip this does the job.
Mr Greenhalgh Despite 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 I An 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 Neath This 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 christian Cheap little piece of plastic which does exactly what its supposed to do with no fuss so why pay more? Made swapping chainset easy
Mr Scale60 Fits perfectly and does the job. Easy to loose because it's plastic and small so keep it stored in a safe place.
Mr Simeons A 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 SARICA Useful tool for shimano crankarms.
Mr McPhail Cheap easy to use and does exactly what its supposed to. Very cheap aswell
Mr SMITHSON GREAT LITTLE TOOL.GREAT.

Mr Thurston Handy tool for the do-it yourself kind of person. great price. Arrived in perfect condition
Mr Jones Does what it is designed for .Grate service.
Mr Proud Does the job but needs a bigger grip really.
