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.

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.

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?

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.

It's a juggling act trying to get everything in place without either one of the bars slipping off the pipe, or off of the dimple in the tool. You seriously need like four hands to hold everything in place! The threads on the tool are so crummy that it doesn't turn fluidly. The two L-shaped bars are so flimsy, that if the compression sleeve resists, they'll just start to bend out of shape until they pop right off of the compression nut, and you're back to square one. This tool is very poorly (cheaply) made, and is extremely frustrating trying to use - especially when you're balled up inside a cabinet under a sink with pipes everywhere and little room to spare. Junk, junk, junk.

Due to an exceedingly flawed design, the puller brackets slip off the nut before there is sufficient tension required to pull the compression ring off of the pipe. As has been suggested, a properly fitting c-clamp may remedy the problem but the device should have been engineered properly prior to be released for sale to the public. Using only the tool itself, the endeavor was a complete waste of time, money and effort. Here's an unconventional idea: Charge me a few dollars more and offer me a product that actually works.

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.

If you need to pull olives (compression sleeves) I highly recommend buying one of the smaller, specialized pullers like "Superior Tool Company 03943 Compression Sleeve Puller" or "English Tool Company Compression Sleeve Puller". I tried this HDX puller on one of my olives and the arms just bent outward without moving the olive. I tried adding heat with a heat gun to no effect. As many reviewers have said, you have to clamp the arms to prevent them slipping off, but the bumps along the middle of both arms make that difficult. A C-clamp with rubber feet or small blocks of wood would help if you have the room. Otherwise, tie them with something strong. If you're pulling a handle or something else with irregular shape, this type of puller is probably your only option. However, there are other versions of it around that might have stronger arms (check reviews).

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.
