We're moving into using commercial sanke kegs for our micro brewery. As such, we needed the tool to properly remove the valve & spear assembly. Your website carried this tool AND offered FREE shipping. A savings to us little guys of more than $35 for this tool. Thanks!!

Not impressed
I had trouble with this going down far enough to get out the clip on new kegs. Wasn’t as easy as showed in videos.

save yourself a lot of trouble and just buy this thing
I have one spear that is not working in any keg. Of course, that was the first try with the tool and I was sorry I had spent the money on the tool. But, in trying to figure out where the problem was, (kegs, spears, tool or me) I switched everything around several times. I did find that it only takes me a few minutes to change a spear now, rather than a temper-filled hour which inevitably ended with sore or cut up hands. I tried various combinations of 3 way clamps and sockets before this and they worked OK sometimes, and I suppose I had to go through those learning experiences, but you don't.

Great tool if you want to take good care of your barrels
This is a great tool which helps you prevent opening your barrels with a hammer and screwdriver, protecting your investment. Also, I would like to take the chance to outline the excellent customer service.

I have yet to use it. It came without instructions. It looks pretty self explanatory, but MoreBeer doesn't sell the clip that holds the spear in and if I need to replace it, I don't know how to get the clip off to start with.

Just buy it...
I bought a bunch of used 1/6bbls for my homebrew from a microbrewery when they switched to microstar. I had been using pliers and a screw driver to remove keg straws. It worked but sometimes it would take me 10-15 mins. I still use my same system with pliers and a small screwdriver but now it's so much faster. I can open a keg in about 1-3 mins now. I wish I had bought this when I bought the 1/6bbls; would have saved so much time and swearing...

Not as easy to use as I thought but does the job
I was using a diy version built out of an edging clamp and brass spacers before. That was a bit fiddly so I thought treating myself to a bit peace of mind, buying this purpose build device.
It is of sturdy build and seems to fit fine.
Just hand tightening will get the ring out fairly easy but putting it back in can be a pain.
At first I thought it does not push the spear head in enough, to let the retainer ring pop back into please. What I have found out is, that the head is only pushed in towards the side where the metal bracket of the removal tool "hugs" the keg's neck. What helps is to seat the ring as much as it goes, releasing the removal tool until you can turn the body to the other side where the retainer couldn't be seated properly and push the rest of the ring in its designated position.
Not ideal, but it works.
Also, I would apply wd40 or rather teflon tape (less messy) to thread at the position where it starts compressing the spear.
The friction seems to put a toll on the thread otherwise.
