Customer 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 157.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bought this to remove an old compression ring on copper pipe. The concept is good, but this tool ... Bought this to remove an old compression ring on copper pipe. The concept is good, but this tool would not work well without modification. The two arms bend and do not have a good grip on the nut. To make this tool useful, you need a way to keep the arms holding onto the compression nut. If you don't have a really strong grip to hold the arms together or want to avoid cutting your palm, then a quick hack would be to tie a nylon string around the arms after tightening. With the string keeping the arms in place, this tool works much better. Still, the manufacturer should change the design to make it usable without modifications. You may find a sturdier version of this at an online retailer. There's also a tool with a different design that screws onto the compression nut for the same function.

The puller arms bend as you try to remove the compression sleeve and pop off the nut. Pretty much useless unless the compression ring was put on in the last year or so. Also, as the ring is removed it is pulled onto the pipe insert and has to be cut off of that before the puller can be used again. If this is the only tool you have available you might find it works a little better if you heat the pipe with a heat gun before attempting to remove the sleeve.

Avoid this tool at all costs, as it WILL fail you. The concept is fine but it does not work. As you tighten the screw, the arms that are supposed to pull the sleeve off with either pop off the sleeve or outright bend. There is better tool that but not available in any local store, only online. The one that works is from a company called Superior Tool, and is called Superior Tool Company 03943 Compression Sleeve Puller and Sleeve Remover for 1/2-Inch Compression Fittings Only. It actually screws on to the old nut so it can't slip off. I spent hours trying to get the HD tool to work. I borrowed the Superior tool from a guy at the store and was done in 20 seconds. The right tool for the job makes a difference. Note: this is not an HD tool issue and all stores sell the above pictured design, but none of them work.

Thumbs up to the best (only) plumbing tool suitable for removing frozen bathroom hardware such as (faucet) handles, stems, and seats. It's proof of power from a small package. Tip: In addition to buying this tool, consider buying a 'thumb turning' hose clamp as well. The hose clamp will free your hands by keeping the claws in place. Keep the job simple, just crank the handle and pull. Another essential tool that you'll need for this doing job will be the L-shaped 'faucet wrench'. Pulling off the handles and stems are one thing, but loosening and pulling out the seats are another.

I was in the store and I requested a tool solely for my purpose of removing the compression sleeve from a copper pipe and was given this product. Total fail. There was no way to maintain a tight enough grip behind the nut while tightening the tool without it eventually slipping off the nut. The right product would have been one that would thread itself into the female nut making it impossible for it to just slip off when the tension is applied by screwing the handle. HD does not carry the latter type of tool. I returned this tool and found the other type elsewhere. The only reason I didn't choose one star is I don't know what kind of job it does with its other advertised use as a handle puller.

I had to use a clamp to hold the ends together. Do yourself a favor spend a little more and get something that works.
