Nut Splitter Tools - 2-Pc. Set
Work OK on Grade 5 or below
I had never heard of nut splitters before being in NT and seeing them on a shelf. Decided the price was right so I took a set home to try on some long term stuck nuts that I couldn't get off. It works good on GRADE5 and under stuff, including stainless. However, grade 8 it doesn't work on. I torqued down on these by hand, with a breaker bar and then with an impact gun with limited success on grade 8. That said, on smaller gauge stuff in lower grade, they work good.

take it or leave it
tried to split a nut with the smaller one and the cutting edge of the splitter just dented instead of cutting the nut, then at another time I went to use the larger and it worked fine

Splits'm rite in 2
These are the best nut splitters I've ever used. You just clamp them on your nuts and start twisting. I especially like the two different sizes. Lets me split my big nut and the smaller one too. Very handy, but they are a pain to use, if used correctly. Good luck with your nuts.

Great Little Tool
I bought this to get rusted nuts a toilet, It worked great. I don't use it much, but when I need it, it works. Have compared to other splitters & can't beat the price. I'm sold!

Good tools for the money
I bought these splitters for a specific nut that I had to crack on a motorcycle, and it worked perfectly.
I was very happy with the performance for the price.
I shopped around and couldn't find a better deal.
This splitter was smooth and cut through the nut with ease.

ok but not great
it worked fine but kept rotating off the nut when you torqued the screw.

I had a nut on a hold down stud of an exhaust manifold of a marine engine which just rotated. Could not be loosened or tightened.
Working area was rather limited. Almost impossible to get at with a cold chissel and hammer.
I ordered the 2 Pc Nut Splitter Set, Item# 150244 and using the smaller of the two was able to split the nut into two pieces within less than 15 minutes.

Nut Splittter Home and Work Review
I have used the nut splitter at home to complete home makeover projects. The tools are easy to use and made the project go smoothly. It made rounded off nuts and rusted nuts a snap to remove. At work I used the splitters to get into hard to reach places where a wrench was unable to get and replaced the bolts. I would recomment this tool to anyone.
