Questions & Answers

What compression ferrule sizes can be pulled?

I have two ferrules to remove in order to replace an under-sink stop valve, one on a 3/8 inch OD copper pipe and the other on a 5/8 inch OD (1/2 inch nominal) diameter copper pipe. Will this tool work on both sizes?
Asked by: FrogFan
It will work on the 3/8 and 1/2 inch sleeves. So this should do what you need it to. The provided insert piece will fit inside both sizes of pipe you are working on. If the sleeve is real tight you might try to split the sleeve with a dermal cut off wheel or hacksaw blade, just cut part way through and try a straight blade screwdriver to open it or break it off. I know some are tough because of the tight area you are working in.

If you don't sell this in stores, and it cannot be shipped, why the heck would you bother showing it on your site? It makes no sense.
Asked by: theangryplumber77
It was available in my local store in Santa Rosa CA. Maybe only available in some stores. Don't know why it couldn't be shipped.

Faucet Handle/Compression Sleeve Puller is rated 2.7 out of 5 by 188.

It seems to be well made and well designed, but I did have a couple of issues. To get the arms to stay behind the nut, I had to grab the arms with one hand while turning with the other. While that resulted in pulling the rings forward, it didn't pull them completely off of the pipe. When the ring got near the end of the pipe, it started to get squeezed between the nut that was being pulled and the coupling that came with the tool. I had to "work" the ring the rest of the way by pulling and twisting with a pliers. The second time I removed a ring, the ring was pulled onto the coupling. Now, how do I get the ring off of the coupling?

I would recommend this product to a friend only because it doesn't cost much and is locally available. Well, actually I'd just lend him mine. For the time and effort it took, better than risking damaging the pipe trying to hack saw or dremel the old rings off. Maybe not the best designed and built tool, but it did remove the compression rings when I was changing out the angle stop valves for a new kitchen faucet. Took about 5 minutes to do both hot and cold water compression rings including snapping a couple of pictures. I cleaned up the copper pipe in front of the rings with some fine-grit sand paper and wiped clean. The rings didn't come off super easy, but it wasn't that difficult. I DID NOT use the notches on the cross bar, I had the legs of the claws close to the screw shaft and applied closing force at the business end of the claw thingies. It didn't take brute strength to keep the puller behind the nut, but the claws did start slipping, usually when I tried to adjust my position under the sink to get more comfortable. To get the old ring off the tool's pipe insert, just flip the insert around, put the claws behind the ring and use the tool to pull the ring back off the insert.

Before I purchased this tool I tried to tap off the handles with many different things but the space between the wall and the back of the handle was way too small to generate any significant force plus I was afraid to scuff up the handle itself. I applied this tool and in a few minutes both handles were off. The only reason why I did not rate this as excellent is because it could use a small improvement....some way of keeping the arms together under pressure as they tend to want to fly apart as you tighten it. You have to hold both arms on the faucet handle to maintain the pulling force

It's extremely rare for me to write a negative review like this but this tool is a total piece of junk. I bought it because I had a compression fitting/sleeve stuck on a copper pipe. Exactly what this tool is supposed to be made for. Every time I got the tool connected and started turning the handle to screw it in an pull the sleeve, the arms kept sliding off the back of the nut. I tried holding the arms in place around the copper pipe and behind the nut but every time I tried to screw the handle down and it was exerting pressure on the nut, the arms would just start pulling off to the side and off the nut. Home Depot should be ashamed for selling a useless product like this.

Everything look simple enough to use but when you start using the product the two prongs at the end do not stay behind the bolt but instead pops off and becomes totally useless as a product. I had to use channel lock plyers to keep the tool from moving away from the nut so trying to squeeze in one hand while turning the compression leave in the other is very gruesome. Although my technique worked the compression sleeve slid right onto the pipe tool assist which is poor design flaw.

The metal grippers tend to slip off and where the T is that the grippers sit in the notches tend to go to the center where the screw is. It took a few tries but eventually it worked but I had to hold the grippers like a vice in my hand to keep them on the nut. When the brass olive comes off it will be on the larger part of the insert. Reverse the insert and use the grippers to get it off just like you did to get it off the pipe. I recommend putting a small clamp on it to keep the ends from opening up while using. I was able to do this with my hand but had to squeeze pretty hard. Pros- Not expense, Worked after a few tries. Cons- Kept falling off the nut. Grippers a too flexible and start to bend and tends to let the nut slip off.

Given the home was built in early 90's the valves were probably original and seated well on to the copper tubing. The metal bars start to bend out and away. Even if you squeeze to hold them onto the nut behind the sleeve. I really tried to make it work, but ended up having to use a small hacksaw to cut off the sleeve. Cheap metal, and the turning handle is very small so hard to put any real torque on it. Returned to the store

However I bought one yesterday. I use it to pull out my BMW X3 rear window wiper arm. I did see the problem as those users complained. I just want to share my experience here. I use a trigger clamp to hold the bottom for me. Then it is very easy to use this puller. I think that a C clamp can also made this puller work well.
