    Good BMX (4 Prong) Freewheel Removers?

    I finally need to buy a BMX freewheel remover, for to remove the freewheel of one of my SS wheels.
    Any tips for a good freewheel remover? I have heard that some of the require you to take off a cone nut to remove the freewheel. I don't want one here I have to remove the cone nut to take off the freewheel.

    Thanks

    I find that it helps to use a axle nut to hold the tool firmly in place. In the shop we use a park and an acs.

    Yup. Makes it much easier and less chance of damaging anything. Be sure to have the nut (or QR) slightly loose.

    I have a Park.... not so happy~ chewed up the jaws in my vice.
    from what ive seen the ASC is a better fit.
    I Just picked up a White Industries and it's dead on and the clamping surface is HUGE!!!
    I haven' used it yet but it milled/machined goodness...

    I got a park. All is well in my household now. The freewheel is off the bike, the tool is in the tool pile, and the freewheel is on the pile of other freewheels on the work bench.

    I like park, park good! thanks all.
