I bought this professional wrench thinking it would fit any of the basic pedals I own. Specifically, Shimano DA and SPD pedals which seems to be a very popular and top selling pedal. This wrench fits none of them and am left wondering what pedals this $40 wrench is intended to be used on....flats? Anyway, not the fault of the product but I wish Park and others would list which products these tools are intended for. The Park site provides zero details on use cases other than stating it is for Professional use ??
Giving it 3 stars because it seems well made. Back to using allen wrenches
Finally got fed up with my Park HCW-6 (fine tool for travel but just to narrow on the hands and not quite enough leverage for removing pedals) and picked up this thing. It is a beast and just wonderfully designed. I've got older Speedplay X series pedals that only have one section for the wrench which makes orienting them to a spot where you can get leverage a huge issue. The two 15mm wrench openings at 30 and 45 degree angles make finding the right leverage spot easy and it's so long that you just have to firmly press down to break loose even the most stubborn pedal. Wish I would have bought this years ago.
I just got this in the mail yesterday, with the usual extra-speedy delivery, and I am one happy camper! I first noticed the beef-factor of this thing when I pulled it out of the box and ripped it out of the plastic wrapping it was in, this wrench is a behemoth!
The handle being as thick, long and round (phrasing!) as it is really makes a difference in leverage and strength in compassion to the smaller one. I've stripped the metal teeth on the smaller one, but I can tell that won't be happening with this one! I've already switched out pedals on two bikes and it works so smoothly! I've got a compact and a standard front ring and my hand is clear of the chain and teeth by more than a fist!
This pedal wrench is the best money can buy. Don't waste your money on a cheaper version of the Park or other brand wrench. This one does the job without fail.
The angled slots provide better leverage than 90 deg pedal wrenches and the flat sides allow the wrench to be flipped over unlike the Park PW-3 I used to use.
As always, specialty tools such as for bikes are over priced. But this one is less overpriced than expected.
This, compared to the old style wrench, is much easier and works a lot better. This is the pedal wrench to buy, for sure.
This is a great wrench, it made quick work of removing a pedal that broke my Craftsman 15mm. No criticism of Craftsman wrench which I was abusing with a pipe extension.
I had been using the older model and then used one of these at the bike shop. Had to have one. The old ones don't even compare.
After years of cheap wrenches and busted knuckles, I broke down and got the Park Professional Pedal Wrench. Well worth the extra cost.
