Don't you just hate it when you accidentally punch a hole into a new oil filter? I do. The Tekton solves my problem, both in taking the old off and installing the new. The filter should only be a smidge over hand-tight; this little baby takes the guess work out. You'll love it. Be sure to tighten the wrench center bolt. Mine arrived too loose but after a third of a turn with a crescent wrench, it now works perfectly.

I love this filter wrench, so much that I've quit using the cap style that often don't work anyways. I was helping a friend change the oil on a 4-runner that had a filter installed by the Hulk. My cap wrench just rounded over the filter housing so I grabbed this tool and it gripped securely while I twisted the filter off.

It does tend to crush the filter housing slightly and can even puncture the metal so this is for the REMOVAL of filters only. Of course, if you are using a wrench to install oil filters, you are over doing it - hand tighten is all they need.

Works as described and is very handy when the oil filter cap wrench won't fit into the tight space under a 370z since the oil filter is only about 1/2" from an oil or water tube?, a swaybar, and part of the frame/suspension. The jaws are sharp enough to puncture the oil filter can so either be careful with these and don't squeeze really hard and rip the pliers sideways/off-axis to twist the jaws, or use an oil filter with thicker metal construction like the Royal Purple ones.

I had an annoying oil filter that just wouldn't come off. Short of piercing the side of it with a screwdriver and try to break it off, I had done everything. I couldn't wait to get this and see if it worked as good as reviews said it would. Out of the package in less than 3 seconds, I examined it. Very sturdy and powerful. Within 15 seconds of putting it on the oil filter I already had it un-stuck and replacing the new one. I was amazed. Highly recommended if you have a stubborn filter. It is also helpful for tightening them back on too!

This tool is much better than the old band tools I have. No more trying to find the room or angle to get a grip on the filter.

I have been rebuilding my tool collection as of late. I have always been a Craftsman guy, I grew up with that Made in USA brand. But after about 5 years since my last trip, image my surprise to see Made in China on half there items. I was ready to cry, cursing Wally World the whole time. Well for Christmas I received a $100 gift card for my favorite store, Amazon, I started researching some other tool brands. I came across Tekton and decided on the good reviews, and no long caring about China made (since everything is now), I loaded up my cart with about $150 worth of Tekton tools. A dead blow hammer, chisel set, file set, oil filter wrench, snap ring pliers, digital tire guage, pick set and a few others. The same tools with my favorite brand would have cost maybe a third or so more. I must say, for what they are the quality is amazing and every bit as good as Stanley made or Craftsman's non-professional line (tools in the store). So in conclusion, whenever I need a critical specialty tool I will look to Tekton made tools; they are probably the best for the price you can find...

Sharing this on all the Tekton products I purchased.

Having only used the smooth loop type wrenches I really like this type of tool instead. It is easier to get a better grip I think on the filter. Of course you do have to be careful to not press too much on the handles as you could dent, or tear the metal as you remove the old filter. Normally that isn't a problem as it is the old one, but if you tear the metal too much it may be hard to remove. If you use this with the correct amount of force it works great. I like that it is adjustable with three different adjustments. I have the 12 inch one which works great on my cobalt and cruiser. If you have a large truck you may need the larger size.

Had a stuck Mobil 1 Extended Performance oil filter (M1-204) that I had been running for 12 months straight (per the "extended performance" 1 yr/15,000 mi guarantee), couldn't twist it even sitting underneath my Jeep with two hands in rubber gloves firmly grasping it, and while I'm not a Strongman, I'm not terribly weak either. Tried everything, until finally recognizing the absurdity of the situation - I have quite a few tools, so why don't I have a ten dollar pair of oil filter pliers? It's not like oil changes are a surprise every time.

In come the Tekton 12-inch oil filter pliers. I've acquired a few Tekton tools via Amazon over the years and have always been pleased, so I went with them again this time, and yet again I'm pleased. These fit around the Mobil 1 oil filter (M1-204) perfectly and I think could handle oil filters even a little bit wider in diameter than this one, and I suspect this one's on the middle to upper end of normal vehicle oil filters. I had to squeeze so hard that the filter started to crush, but this was not a problem and in fact allowed the pliers to REALLY sink in and twist without slippage. Finally, the filter started twisting off. Woohoo! Now that I own these, never again will a 20 minute oil change turn into a 3 day adventure..
