You can sometimes get loaner tools from your local AutoZone
These tools are expensive,and hard to justify buying them for such infrequent use

I rented an otc from oreillys and wouldnt get it out.. clamp starts expanding...i read the snap on are stronger thus the search...

I know they are pricey... hoping to find a used set i can resell later or just rent outright....

Thanks

I've changed a few sets with the OTC tools and never had any issue.
They sometimes need persuasion by BFH on the side of the knuckle with the clamp as tight as you can get it
