    for what it is designed for it is ideal and reliable,the problem is most gararge air lines do up the wheel bolts way too tight,and when you try and undo the wheel bolts with the standard wheel brace the poor old wheel brace is struggling with a torque loading over its designed limit

    a few years ago i had a cavalier which i needed to remove one of the back wheels,most tools i had would not shift it,i took it to a couple of garages including a tyre and exhaust place,their air guns would not shift it,using a breaker bar and 17mm socket ened up with a shattered socket! and the wheels were only refitted a few weeks earlier,luckily i had a 4 foot bar and an impact socket which i had forgotten about that did the trick,so in some cases a normal air gun can overtighten a wheel bolt way too much

    I have got one that is simalar to that. They do work but can take some time to "whack" the nut undone. What I prefer as it is easier, is a very long breaker bar. I have not had any problem with one of them undoing wheel nuts yet.
