The product is good for what it is intended for, I know a lot of o2 sensors are hard to remove. Most of them are supposed to be heated to help make it easy to remove them, weather or not you run the engine for a few minutes to heat exhuast or use a small torch (propane or what ever) right at the threaded bung just to loosen it. Maybe around 120degrees F. this will help you for sure just dont get too close to hot parts. wear long sleeve protection for safety....
Also you might try putting a hose clamp around it if you have room to hold it closed if your one that has a problem with it wanting to flex open because of the slot.

Comments about AutoCraft Oxygen/Vacuum Sensor Socket:

I only used it to install the new O2 sender. Cut off old one and used a regular deep socket.

      Comments about AutoCraft Oxygen/Vacuum Sensor Socket:

      I tried to use it to remove the O2 sensor on my 07 Silverado but in order to keep it from slipping a hose clamp is required. With the limited space I just used a boxed end wrench to do the job.

          The socket will split if you try to use it with old sensors. Use a 7/8 6pt deep well and cut the wires to remove the old one. DO NOT try to use this. It works fine for installation.

                  i have had much difficulty using this O2 sensor socket. the slit in the side makes the socket separate too much and will not solidly grip a frozen O2 sensor. it really needs a solid band at the bottom end to keep it from spreading open when you put force on it then the slot start farther up for the wires to protrude. I am looking for a different socket to purchase.

                    As i placed the tool around my o2 sensor i noticed it was a bit loose on the back side opposite of the opening. But did make contact on the sides so i tried to use it. As soon as i tried to remove the sensor it immediately rounded it. Do not buy. I will no longer be shopping here because iv had nothing but problems.

                    Comments about AutoCraft Oxygen/Vacuum Sensor Socket:

                    I tried this socket and it promptly slipped and stripped the sensor. This socket fit the sensor pretty well. I think the over-sized slot allows the socket to flex and strip.
