I used the tool on two cartridges, absolutely no issues. Channel locks provided sufficient grip and the tool didn’t deform at all. Given the price tag of this thing, I have to believe you’d spend a lot more in your “labor cost” to fabricate your own.

You can usually find correct replacement parts locally or on line unless your fixtures were made by a company that is now out of business. If you live in a tract home, disassemble as far as you can and take photos. If it is a faucet with a separate shutoff try to get it apart and take the old parts out. Go to the nearest hardware store with the part (if you have it), show the photos and explain what you want to the plumbing section salesperson. They can usually tell you what you need. If it is a custom home they might not be able to tell or the part may need to be ordered. In this case I suggest shutting off the water, take a stem out and take it to the hardware store, plumbing supplier, etc. to show them what you have and make sure you get the right part. This is an age old problem with plumbing fixtures. Many cartridges, stems and other parts look very similar. Without having the old part out of the faucet and side by side with the new one it is difficult to tell if they are the same.

Right tool for a tub faucet?

This is the tool that I successfully used for my roman tub faucets. FYI, the descriptions that HD gives for a lot of the stuff they sell are seriously misleading. I suspect they are generated by someone who has no idea what they are describing. Try to get the manufacturers part number if you can find it, then go to the manufacturer's web site to get a more accurate description. Or, make sure it can be returned and just buy it and see. HD does have a reasonable return policy and I have even talked them into taking back stuff that was a special order because their description of what I ordered was incorrect (but that isn't guaranteed).

Can we use any other substitute or trick to open the cartridge other than this tool

I would say no, unless you can design your own invention.

If you have a piece of 3/4 copper you can make your own. Use a copper cutter to notch the copper on 2 sides and cut it to size with some sheet metal snips.

The cartridge removal tool worked fine. The repair was complicated by first installing the wrong cartridge but when I figured this out, got the right cartridge, I was able to complete the repair without problem.

After reading a couple other reviews, I had my doubts about this faucet cartridge removal tool. It worked quite easily and quickly. I would not have been able to change the cartridge without this tool. The real question is why I need a special tool to fix a leaky faucet, but that's a manufacturer problem, not a Home Depot problem. The tool worked as advertised, though it did take a little more than a week to have it shipped to my local store.
