How it works on forks:
Soft Jaw Fork Peg holds fork slider up for removal of dust seal and seal retaining clip.
Repositionable bottom slide bar holds forks compressed while bleeding air (priming cartridge) during reassembly and is an excellent platform for adding, adjusting and taking fork oil level measurements.
Can be used to assist in removing compression valve assembly (use of stock front axle required).
How it works on shocks:
Holds shock firmly around shock body, shaft or shock reservoir.
Facilitates removal of piston rod and seal head.
Facilitates removal of shock reservoir caps, chamber pistons or bladder.
Holds shock to remove spherical bearings or needle bearings.
This is truly a no brainer purchase. It's like have an extra set of hands! Had the old one and decided to get this one as I find the ability to rotate a fork assembly to horizontal, 45 degree down angle and vertical is super helpful when servicing forks or shocks. Once you have it you will wonder how you got along without it. Rocky Mountain as usual has the best price on these as well as fast delivery.
