Our DT EXP drive ring removal tool is made of ultra tough 4140 steel making it able to handle all the abuse you can throw at it including impact use.
It is important to note that our tool is built specifically to be used with sockets or wrenches. A hex by design does not handle clamping forces well and can easily be crushed in a vice.
Our tool is guaranteed for life against failure from normal use. Damage from clamping the tool in a vice will not be covered under warranty though.
