      Comments about Factory Air Air Conditioning Valve Core Tool:

      Seems to be a well made product until you try to use it. The Knureled 'Handle', or 'Knob' spins on the shaft giving no force at all to the shaft, so the valve core cannot be loosened OR tightened.

        Comments about Factory Air Air Conditioning Valve Core Tool:

        I have had this for about a year. I am a full time technician so I use it often, VERY often in the summer.
        Not much to it. Mine has not broken like the other reviewers... it is very sturdy.

        Poor Quality & Durability

            Comments about Factory Air Air Conditioning Valve Core Tool:

            I uses this on an auto air conditioner low pressure valve stem (like found on tire valve), as it is supposed to be intended. The brass/bronze barrel which appears to work by grabbing onto the small gear type teeth on the metal key portion, failed immediately even using just my hands to rotate. Unless it was used, broken/stripped by someone else then returned to the store, I would consider very poor design. I could even rotate the 2 sections by hand without being connected to the valve.
