Pros: Great for a professional shop!

Cons: Pointless for a home shop.

Recommendation: It was great for use at the bike shop because you would get customers that would take their pedals with them for their other bikes, and would be stuck with just a crank arm. Now, just slap this baby in and start cranking! Be sure to put a little grease on the threads every now and then to ensure smooth thread on and off. If you have an old drive side pedal around, you can make this tool. just remove the pedal and keep the spindle.

Pros: - easier thjan threading in a pedal
- easier to grip and use than a pedal

Cons: - only works on one side
- does not come threaded
- kind of useless.

Recommendation: I expected this tool to have a 9/16" pedal thread but the end is smooth and you have to make a few threads yourself threading it into the pedal hole for the first time. Be sure you thread it into the drive side of the crank the first time you use it!

DP-1 is written on the box but Park uses DP-3 on its description page for some reason.

I wish this tool had a quick release.
