This tool is excellent for removing over-tightened filters or those that are hard to access. This tool is only for removal, it can NOT be used to install a filter. Only use it on disposable spin-on filters, not on cartridge style filters that use a metal or plastic re-usable housings as the sharp teeth will cause damage.
Here's how to use it in hard to reach locations where you still have access to the end of the filter: Install the wrench on the end of an extension that's long enough to reach the filter. Set the ratchet to the tighten, or right hand direction. Push the wrench against the back of the filter while rotating it the in right hand direction. This will cause the jaws to open and the wrench will slip down over the filter. Now reverse the ratchet and turn it to the left to remove the filter.

This funny looking thing lends credence to the statement; "the right tool for the job". One of the best features is the way the jaws open with a simple turn to the right. Once you set your ratchet to loosen the oil filter is coming off. No matter how stuck it is. This thing is one of the best tools I have ever bought. A must have!
I have not used the tool yet,it seem very sturdy and we'll built. I think it will be good,I work in a lube rack. Will proballyfind out soon
It's the first wrench that let me easily remove the filter from my 2005 Accord. However, the sharpness of its teeth requires that it be treated with respect. I wouldn't set it in a tool box any more than a would a utility knife with the blade sticking out. The special screw in funnel is also very nice.
This made a hard job so easy!
Because of the tight space that I was working in, I had some initial difficulty getting the wrench on the filter. That being said, once it was on it was a "beast" at gripping the filter for removal. I have since recommended it to others that do their own oil changes.
