Rated 1 out of 5 by from Fails on so many levels. Fails on so many levels. I will be promptly returning this item. Because of it's tapered nature, it can only grab the front inside corners of the valve seat. It does not grip the square corners all the way to the rear of the valve seat. This is a recipe for stripping the contact points out. And when you're removing decades old valve seats, you're in trouble. What should have been a 30 mins job, turned into a plumbers nightmare. Had to smash the valve seat off and re-tap the threads. (5/8" - 18tpi is not a common tap in smaller kits!) When installing a new valve seat, you won't have problems with stripping the corners out, but if you press hard enough to get good contact with the inside corners, the wider part of the tapered tool would nick the valve seat face itself! I had to use a file to fix my new valve seats! I ended up getting the 6 stepped valve seat tool from a competitor. Just realized that you can also get an HDX version here on the Home Depot site too. There may very well be a reason to get a the tapered tool, but for me, the 6 stepped one will remain in my tool box. 6-Step Faucet Seat Wrench http://www.homedepot.com/p/HDX-6-Step-Faucet-Seat-Wrench-HDX157/204218633

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well, though needs some "help" getting stuff out. This tool is "easier" than the 6-side for putting the seat back in, but "harder" for getting it out. Apparently the recommendation for getting it out is to spray it with lots of WD40, let it soak 10 or 15, then tap the end of the tapered with a hammer. Then it'll give. Barring that, lookup the youtube video of a guy beating a screwdriver into one :)
