its a long bar with a socket drive on the end to give you leverage. theres no ratchet mechanism so its stronger

Or a length of scaffold pipe over your existing T bar. Tis all about leverage, the longer the bar, the less grunt required.

Cheers

watch out, as mine groaned and moaned for ages and then got worse,much worse in one day,which is why i decided to get up early on a sunday to do it.the bearing had been rolling around the back seat for weeks.be cheeky and try your local tyre place to loosen it for free especially if you buy tyres there
