The point wasn’t to annoy anyone? It was to draw attention to the fact that Barclay’s is one of the largest bankrollers of the fossil fuel industry.
I really should get one myself because they’re inexpensive and i may never use it but when you need it you’re really gonna need it and not necessarily for your own vehicle. I have one of those telescopic wheel nut wrenches though because when it’s pouring with rain and you need to change a flat and the pokey little wrench that comes with the car has nowhere near enough leverage to unscrew the wheel nuts that have been screwed down tight by a pneumatic nut wrench at the tyre centre…
One day I had to remove a wheel on my van to replace a CV joint or a tie-rod or something so as an exercise I chose to do it using just the tools in the van.
I was surprised to find I couldn’t undo the wheel bolts with the tool that came with the van nor with the extending device that you have pictured above.
I was happy to discover this in the sunshine outside my workshop rather than in the rain on the side of a motorway.
My solution was to purchase a 24" Teng 1/2" breaker bar and a 19 mm impact socket which I then taped together. This works well and I have confidence in it.
It sort of underlines why I want to try out the glass-breakers.
Good grief! It may be time for a wheel nut loosening test.
