For brewers who are physically disabled or are geting on in years this is a must have. I've nearly broken both arms trying to get a king ked off. This tool makes it so easily, it's ridiculous. I was shocked how cheap it was too considering how strongly it's built. one tip is, the entire tool is kind of concave. put the "cave" side down between the struts of the king keg lid. It's a lot easier than forcing it with the "bulging" end facing down.

King Spanner

Brewing for over 30 years and never needed one of these spanners then got a lid stuck on another Keg. Broke off 2 of the lugs trying to remove it. New spanner arrived and the lid was eased off in no time. Highly recommended as apart of your brewing tool kit.

Does the job

After years of struggling with King Kegs lids, i bought this spanner. Worked a treat, although it does feel a bit 'thin'. It sits quite high as the notches are made for the larger ridges and it could do whit another set of cut outs to fit the smaller ridges underneath. I feel this would make it feel less likely to fly off and skin your knuckles!. However, as I said it did work a treat!

Cap spanner

It works but with heat difficulty

Stop messing with string and towels

Its a bit bendy so needs to be pressed on well but it gets the lid tight with little effort. Wish I had one before!

Great additional product

Makes sure you get the cap on nice and tight. Probably particularly useful if you've got little hands.....either way worth adding it on,

Bit flimsy

Not particularly easy to use as the 'handles' tend to twist, but this has the benefit of ensuring you don't over-tighten - so maybe a possible design-weakness is really it's strength?

Easy life

This isn't essential with your keg but definitely makes removing the lid under pressure a lot easier. Worth a try!

Useful tool

This is a very useful tool. Without it, making the King Keg air tight can be quite a strain on your fingers. This makes the job a piece of cake, and at a good price too.

Worked for a Boots Keg

I needed to get the top off my old Boots keg and found this gadget. It did not fit without a little filing of the notches but it now fits and worked OK. It is a little flimsy but perhaps it is stronger than it looks.

As described

just as described. it's not massively strong but it did make removing the keg lid a lot easier once i had heated up the vaseline!
