I can see how some others may have had some problems, so let me give you a couple of tips that I think will help ensure success.
First, and I can't emphasize this enough, LUBRICATE THE TOOL BEFORE USE. As it's delivered, it doesn't have a single drop of oil on it, it's completely dry. A drop of heavy oil at each pivot point, and a little light grease on the sliding quill that holds the mandrels makes all the difference in the world. Once lubricated, it takes much less effort to use and pulls more evenly.
Second, yes, the handles don't pull evenly. This is due to the fact that the bore through the tool body is at least 1/16 larger diameter than the "pulling bar" that slides through it. Any little angular misalignment there is magnified into a significant offset at the end of the handles. It appears that it doesn't make any real difference, as long as you are aware of it, and try to keep the tool perpendicular to the work. Don't lean it over trying to compensate for this, as you'll set the nutsert crooked.
Finally, once lubricated, this tool will provide enough leverage to break itself. You have to feel when the nutsert is fully expanded and stop pulling. If you squeeze those handles until your eyes bug out, you're going to break something. That level of force isn't necessary to accomplish the tool's function, and in fact it's detrimental.
Take a workmanlike attitude using this tool and it looks like it will serve you well. Even though I hate buying "cheap" tools I think it was a good value for the money, and knowing what I know now, I'd buy it again.
Cons: Quality - you can tell it's made in China, and you get what you pay for. I don't mind it so much. If this was a tool I was banging on constantly, like a ratchet wrench or something, then I would want higher quality. But for something I might use every few years, it's find.
Another consideration: based on how thick the material is that your installing the rivet nut into, you may need to "squeeze twice." Once you get the rivet nut in place, back out the mandrel a few turns, and then cinch it down again. Don't over do it though, you can break the nut and/or the mandrel.
Important usage tip!! Keep in mind that if you don't get the rivet nut in there tight enough the first time, then it will spin inside the hole, making it extremely difficult to unscrew the mandrel. Make sure you get it in there snug the first time! Then go back and give it a second squeeze to make sure it's really locked in.
There were open holes that were missing the flush mount rivets so by using this tool we were able to use the proper insert and install it with this riveter and then install the screw in bolt as needed.
My Husband was quite shocked that a tool and inserts like this existed! He wanted to know why our truck manufacturer did not use these types of rivet inserts more on certain areas...the inter-cooler was one specific area.
Very easy to use just choose the right rivet type insert and screw it onto the tool. Then open your tool so the arms are wide and insert that end into the hole and compress the tool using equal strength and straight on, do not try and insert at an angle.
I think the price point is average and expected.
