    It should work on all presta vales with removable cores (not all are removable). Put the larger open end over the valve. Turn tool.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    Yeah, I tried that, but the tool just slips over the valve and doesn't engage anything.
    I think the valves are Giant brand, maybe not removable core.

    If they have a removeable core, the cores will have wrench flats for the remover to engage. Often times the stem and core are different materials/color as well.
    In this photo you can see both:

    Turns out the valves I have are non-removeable cores.
    Went out and bought Stan's valves... much better.
