I bought one of these.. they work but you need to crank the bolt in very tightly and this distorts the metal band.. it still removed some very old and tight spheres though..

Not as well made as the proper citroen tool..

Just received mine and I agree. I can see it would be a good functional tool for removing dead spheres but not good for ones that are still a going concern.

I reckon I could knock up something better with a bit of welding, watch this space... but this one will do for now :)
