I was very surprised to see how small this spanner was when it arrived. It manages to fold in on itself, much like a snake would coil itself up, to a very nifty size of around 30mm square. Now that is compact for a 15mm spanner! Perfect for carrying around in a cycle jersey.
Now here's the problem.
I bought this to help release my special lock nuts on my wheels. The spanner has such a short arm, roughly 50mm it's very tricky to get any sort of leverage... also if you slip, you will hit your fingers on your frame of your bike like I have a number of times. OUCH!
In the end I went out and bought a 15mm "Ice toolz pedal wrench" for £8.99, (compared to the £24 of this tool!), and that is a dream to use, with enough arm leverage to easily remove any nuts or bolts. There is truth behind the saying "Bigger is Better".
