No more crooked star nuts. Perfect placement, every time. It makes it such a breeze, that I wonder why I didn't get this tool sooner.

I like to hold the fork in my hand, while I hammer on it. Instead of beating on a fork with its blades resting on the ground or workbench, to avoid any deformation of its legs. It might take a few more whacks, since my arm is absorbing much of the shock, but the peace of mind that comes from knowing the blades haven't been stressed, makes it worth the extra effort.

The star fangled nut. Such a simple item that should be easy to install... NOT! Without the proper tool, installing the star fangled nut can be a nightmare. This tool makes it a simple 1 minute operation.

Great tool. Setting star nuts without something like this is hot or miss. This make it very easy at a reasonable price.

Pros: Price, sets at perfect depth and straight.

Cons: none

Only had to use it once so far but it made the star nut installation a quick, no fuss, and properly done job. Wish it was cheaper but it is atleast built very solidly and should last through many uses

Do you have starnuts? Do you have steer tubes? Do you wish their was an easy way to put the starnuts INTO the steer tubes?

Park really knocked it off the park with this one. The threaded pin is replaceable if you bung it up (been there done that). The whole assembly is super heavy, which means it really plows that starnut home. I look forward to installing starnuts now as it is a great way to get out some anger.

Pros: Heavy
Really heavy
Replaceable threaded pin

Cons: Really heavy

Heavy duty starnut setter. Screw on the star nut, couple of smacks with hammer, job done. Starnut in place. Easy.
Solidly built, should never need to buy one of these again.

Pros: Heavy duty

Cons: None

Handy tool, sets strut easily no fuss

The star nut setter is a great tool, they need to be replaced in time,

I actually purchased the extra Screw.... easy to lose. I have not lost one yet but thought I had better get a spare for my kit.

Pros: Works great, easy to use, solid tool.
You get to hammer on it.

Such a simple tool, but it does the job well, and with no fuss, putting the star nut where it needs to go with a few hits of the hammer.

Pros: It makes putting the star nut to the exact depth it needs to go very quick and easy.

Cons: None.

you like to have just the right tool for the job.

This is one of the three tool I think you should have if you want to install new forks on your own bikes. It's heavy and give a great area to focus your mallet blow to with out worry of hitting you hand. pound it until it's flush to the fork and the star is set at the proper depth and at the proper angle.

Pros: heavy
pro worthy
idiot prof

Cons: none

Little tool that makes a huge difference

I only used it twice so far but it did make setting the starnut short and easy. The tool is very heavy, I expect it to last a lifetime.

Pros: Makes the job a lot easier

Cons: None

Makes installing star nuts way easier than just trying to hammer them in.

Pros: Heavy duty

Cons: Kind of expensive for a hunk of steel, any welder could make one cheap.

Park Tool TNS-1 Starnut Setter

Have had this for several years and installed half a dozen starnuts with it. Can be hard to get the starnut started straight and keep it going straight since there is nothing to use as a guide. Sets it at the proper depth and considering this tool is made of a solid hunk of metal will never break.

Would buy the newer slide hammer version of this tool before considering this one. Too bad it wasn't available when I purchsed this one.

Pros: -will never break
-easy to use


Cons: -hard to get starnut started straight
-hard to keep the starnut going straight

Would Buy Again: No
Would Recommend: No
