Poor Instructions For Use
After much searching I discovered this tool to enable the removal of a compression sleeve from a copper line - on paper it seemed like the answer to my problem. The "paper" part is the issue here - the instructions that accompany this tool are limited and not clear - something as simple as "which direction to spin the handle" is not mentioned. I learned more by reading comments and descriptions from other users then from the instructions. The video on the HD website for the tool only shows the "handle pulling" - nothing about "compression sleeve" removal. Even so, it could not have prepared me for the issue of transferring the "problem" from the copper line to the tool's "peg" - as can be seen from the pix, now the sleeve is stuck on the peg rather than the copper line (no instructions for removal). I called the "Husky phone number" (in reality a HD customer service rep) who had no idea how to resolve - he suggested I return the tool and get a new one to take off the second sleeve, and he also gave me the manufacturer phone number. I called the manufacturer phone number and was give zero assistance - the person couldn't help with any technical question and suggested I call a plumber for resolution (seriously - call a plumber to trouble shoot their $14 tool??). It appears the tool should include multiple "pegs" in order to be used more than once - or be given instructions on how to remove the sleeve from the peg. With no information or technical assistance it appears this is a single use tool - I will return it again in order to be able to use the tool on the next "sleeve pulling" situation.

    Got 3 out of 4 handles off before the tip bend.
    I needed to remove two shower and two tub handles in order to replace leaky valves. The handles were stuck on from 30 years of hard water. I was able to get 3 handles off pretty easily using this tool. Unfortunately the last one always has to be difficult. The handle wouldn't budge, but the tool did. It buckled... literally. The tip bent and some threads slipped. Either I have bionic hands or the tool is made of soft, cheap steel. I could understand it buckling had I cranked it with pliers, but I was only using my hand to turn. In my opinion, this is not a professional tool. Even though it comes with a lifetime warranty, I don't have time to deal with that.

      Not strong enough for some faucets
      My faucet handle bent the tool. One of the metal pieces that are bent 90 degrees got straightened a little and kept slipping out from under the faucet, causing slight chipping of the faucet. I had to re-bend that piece. Hand strength wasn't enough to keep the sides of the tool together so I had to use a strap and two pieces of thick baling wire. Then I needed a large wrench to turn the handle.

        Just buy this thing ... it will save you a lot of cursing and a lot of time. I wish I had bought this years ago. Of course you can fiddle brass ferrules off copper pipe but this puller makes it fast, easy and near risk free of damaging anything. For under eleven bucks one of the best tool investments I've made in a long time. If pulling ferrules, take the screw out of the arms to make it easier to get into tight places under sinks. Also the instructions aren't so clear which way the silver insert goes into the pipe, turns out only the skinny end fits in 1/2" copper.

        Choose one function - here covering ferrule puller
        This tool oddly has two functions, as the name implies. I wish the manufacturer would have dedicated this tool to only one function to make it easier to understand how to use it. I'm a degreed mechanical engineer, so I figured if use of this tool was not clearly intuitive, I am likely not alone. In need of a tool pull a stuck compression fitting ferrule (commonly called a compression ring or sleeve), I purchased this tool as no other such animals were available in my area. Almost any tool will work better than hack-sawing the ferrule at an angle to remove it. Once you score the surface of the pipe or get it out of round, you will not be able to achieve an effective seal, meaning that your repair will leak. The environment I was working in was under a kitchen sink with a horizontal drain pipe several inches in front of the valve location and braided water supply lines dangling about. The dangling arms I initially thought would be needed to pull against the back of the ferrule nut. Nope, not so. No instructions, just a couple of small pics on the face of the packaging which definitely aids in sale but not in use of this tool. Since those arms were annoyingly in my way, I simply unscrewed and removed them along with the aluminum cast arm they hung from. Then I hack-sawed off ~5/16" of the ends of the handle cross bar and ground the ends round on a grinder. This allowed the handle to turned a full revolution without obstruction, due to a drain pipe clearance issue. With very little screw pressure required to draw the ferrule off the end of the tube, the handle should be much shorter, so I made it so. Lacking instructions, use of the remaining pieces was not clear. So I have provided a pic of the modified assembly with all parts in exploded view, including the just removed ferrule and ferrule nut included. I suggest applying a light coat of oil on the outside of the aluminum barrel piece around the larger diameter end. This is so that when the ferrule is pulled off the copper pipe and onto that piece, it will also not be found to also be stuck, this time on the barrel piece. Similar space constraints may be experienced in the open behind a toilet in replacing an angle valve, also requiring the above mentioned modifications. If the handle threaded rod is too long for your working environment, it would be better to buy a shorter such tool by another manufacturer which is activated using a socket wrench, available at many true hardware stores. Com[pression fitting installation tips: 1) Clean the bare pipe of debris and film with rubbing alcohol, then apply a thin layer of pipe joint compound around the ferrule to assist in a water tight seal, before assembling your new valve, ferrule and ferrule nut. \ 2) Hand tighten gently the nut and then use two wrenches to tighten further: one to hold the valve body and the other to tighten (open end or adjustable wrenches - not a pipe wrench or channel locks). This prevents strain on the pipe joint behind the wall, which could break integrity of the pipe. 3) Tighten with wrenches gently 1/2 to 2/3 turn only. Turn the water supply main valve back on slowly, with a couple of other plumbing fixtures open some to relieve pressure, and check for leaks. Tighten the nut slightly more if necessary. Remember you can always tighten more, but not less.

          Remove the arms when removing a compression sleeve
          Worked perfectly, with a minor modification to the instructions. Remove the arms by spinning them off the puller. They are not used when you pull a compression sleeve. 1. Screw the brass fitting onto the puller handle and Insert the narrow end of the silver fitting into the pipe (you may have to open up the end of the pipe ever so slightly). 2. Insert the pointed end of the puller into the silver fitting and carefully thread the compression nut onto the brass fitting. 3. Turn the puller handle clockwise until the compression sleeve slips off. 4 & done. Tap the sleeve off the silver fitting. Pretty simple and, unlike other reviews, you only need two hands to do it.

            Absolute garbage!
            I bought this tool with the intent of easily removing a compression sleeve from a leaky toilet valve. Worst $12 I have ever spent. Unless you have 4 hands, don't expect this to work for you. I would rather replace the copper pipe coming from the fitting in the wall.

              Difficult to use
              I drove to a store 2 cities away because I thought this tool would be necessary to remove the old compression sleeve. It was either this, or cut off the old nut and sleeve with a dremel and risk damaging the pipe. I wanted to do it "correctly" so I oped for this tool. I didn't have much room for leverage, and one side of the puller kept slipping off of the pipe. I attempted to keep the two sides from spreading apart by tying a small rope around them, but as you can see it didn't help. Unless you have ideal conditions where you can grip this thing tightly and keep it perfectly straight, you're going to have a hard time. I ended up cutting both the nut and ferrule with a dremel and using a flat head screwdriver to separate them from the pipe. A word to the wise, don't remove an old valve unless absolutely necessary (if it's leaking). If you do, try to reuse the old compression nut and copper ferrule without removing them. You'll save yourself a lot of hassle.

                This is the first time I had attempted to remove faucet handles, mainly because I never had the proper tool. The Husky faucet handle and sleeve puller is the correct tool, I absolutely love the tool makes hard jobs a lot easier.I would recommend this tool to any do it yourself person that has struggled tying to remove faucets and handles in the past because this is the tool for you!

                Don't use for compression sleeves
                This might be fine for faucet handles but don't use for a compression sleeve. The tool has a design flaw. The Peg that inserts into the pipe has a chamfer were it interfaces with the pipe. It will end up flaring your copper pipe. Ended up costing me $235 for plumber.

                  I requested to try out this handle/sleeve puller because I wanted to change a faucet handle in my bathroom (I actually have others to change as well, just not right now). After removing the cap and screw of the handle I opened the package and without having to read the instructions, I was able to set the pulling arms and device easily. A few turns later and the handle was off. It made the whole job that much easier as compared to having to either pull or pry the old handle off. Attaching the new handle on was simple after quickly cleaning the rest of the faucet. A handy tool.

                  The Husky Faucet Handle and Sleeve Puller comes in an attractive blister type package. While I only had to use it to pull a faucet handle off (it was seized on with calcium deposits) it worked easily and did not damage the plastic handle. It has a large range of adjustments so I would assume it would work on almost any household faucet handle or sleeve.

                  The Faucet handle puller was just the right tool for removing old and caked in handles like my garage sink taps. As the picture shows there is a lot of caked in grime on the insert spindle and the handle. I removed one of them without the use of the puller and I had to pries it up with screw drivers. It also worked with a old single handle mixer tap in my wash room. However the new mixer taps which are two angled handles I could not figure out a way to use the puller as shown in the picture. Next, I tried to use the sleeve puller function to remove the olive from a compression fitting but I ran in to problems with the thread and diameter of the standard threaded compression fitting as the picture shows. The thread diameter of the compression fitting is 7/8 inch and 12 threads per inch and the diameter of the adapter of the puller is 3/8 inch and 16 threads per inch as the picture shows. So, I could not use this tool to remove sleeve ( olive). Not sure what I am missing

                        The threads would not go into the brass piece for removing a compression sleeve, was unusable. Another one would have probably been fine, but I instead went to a different store and bought an almost identical item and had no troubles.

                          Turned a very frustrating projecting into simple one. I had to pull a compression sleeve off and I didn't have enough copper line to just cut it. I followed the instructions and just kept turning until the sleeve came off. Worth the investment.

                                        Does the job
                                        Used this for pulling a couple ferrules (compression rings) off of 1/2" pipe in a pretty confined space. Had to cut the T arms off, but worked okay with channellocks for twisting it... much easier than trying to remove the ferrule with channelocks alone. Didn't have any issues with flaring or otherwise damaging the pipe. On one line I didn't need the arms, it threaded on fine, but the arms were useful on the other one to pull from the nut after I couldn't quite get it to thread.

It was for a handle with a screw in the middle that the puller could press on. I had used a similar gadget for pulling the clutch on my motorcycle and could see how it should have worked the same on the faucet handle. I have subsequently found that there is no easy way to pull the handle on this particular Delta shower handle. The Video on the internet shows a way and it involves two people with a piece of 2x4 block and one taps on the handle with the block and hammer while the other pries up on the handle to pull it off. Someone needs too design another puller!
