This thing does the job for sure. I'm not sure the extra $ for the locating pin are money well spent though; mine fell out eventually. I find it does hang-up a bit on the teeth of a SRAM PG cassette, for what that's worth.

Pros: Functional

Simple and effective.

This tool is pretty basic, but it does the job nicely. The center pin is nice so you don't need to use your skewer to keep it on. You'll need a pretty large wrench for this (1" I think), so make sure you have something of that caliber on hand.

Pros: Simple, nice guide pin, Park Tool quality.

Cons: None.

Park Tool FR-5GC Lockring Remover

This iteration of Park's FR-5 Lockring Remover includes a center guide pin. It replaces (for me) the earlier FR-5 model with the center hole and seemingly shorter splines.

Pros: Center guide pin
Ample spline area should prove durable

Cons: None

I like this better than the pin-less version. Keeps it in the slot needed.

Good tool

It's pretty simple. It removes lockrings for cassettes and some smaller disc rotors with centerlock. It doesn't deform over time unless you do something stupid. It's easy to use and will last you a lifetime.

I wouldn't buy it again only because I won't ever need to!

Pros: Effective, reliable and durable

Cons: None

You need this!

If you dont own one of these, there is something wrong. Get it and dont look back.

Is bomb proof and works time after time.

Never had a problem using this to remove a cassette.

Pros: Does exactly what you need it to do.
Solid - wont need to buy another

Cons: none.

The guide pin is a nice feature. This is replacing my older "Shimano style" lockring remover that had very shallow grooves. It was hard for the grooves to get a good bite on the splines and would always slip off.

Good tool

This is well made and works fine. I would much prefer it had a metric-sized nut on it though. Who has imperial sockets these days?! It means I have to use an adjustable wrench on it.

Pros: Quality

Cons: Imperial nut.

Strong tool. The center guide rod really helps keep the tool in place. This will also work for center lock rotors which is a big plus. Another great Park tools product.

Must Have!!

This is a must have tool is you do more maintenance than just airing up your tires and lubing a chain. The spindle that goes thru the axle really helps keep the lockring remover from falling/popping off.

Pros: Park Quality

Cons: None

essential tool

a 'must have' in your mnt. bike tool kit. combined with a chain whip, it's all you need to remove and replace your cassette in seconds. and, purchase a 1" socket at a hardware store and use it with this to get the proper newton meters with a torque wrench.

Pros: its made by Park Tools

Cons: none

I have busted two other lockring removers, but neither of them had the center spindle. Hopefully that will even out the stress points and prevent the tool from cracking on me.

Why pay a bike shop to do this when you have this tool in hand.
Pays for itself after one use.
