Need to replace a broken tool

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!!

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.

Well constructed
Turns out I needed a threaded sanke d spear remover (didn't even know that was a thing). This seemed to function properly, it did let the pressure out of the keg and was well made. I'm keeping it for future use as I'm sure we will eventually have both threaded and drop sanke d kegs.

bit misleading
make sure you read the fine print at the bottom; this is not a spear removal tool, this is a pressure relief tool for a sanke keg. works well for relieve pressure safely, but you'll need more tools to remove the spear.

This is a Sanke Spear Removal Tool. It is designed to fit in-between the lock tabs of a D-Type spear, release pressure, and disengage the press spring holding the spear in place, thus allowing the removal of the retention spring.

Sanke Valve removal tool
VERY happy with this tool.
It make taking out the Sanke valve much easier by taking the pressure off to remove the ring. I can be a bit tough the first time but after trying to remove the ring with out this, I will never not use this!
Besides this is one of those tools that starts a conversation when displayed.
Well worth the money.
