So I'm Getting Owned By A Crankpuller

So I just got my new crank puller and am trying to transfer all my parts to my new frame. I have both attachments for the splined and standard crank. Right now I am trying to use the standard one because it seems logical. I have done almost everything imaginable to a bike but never needed to get to my BB or change cranks so.....How do you use these crazy contraptions?

Dadgum...didn't it come with directions?

Okay, unscrew the inside part all the way out. Thread the outside collar of the crank puller into the crank arm until it's snug. Screw the inside part down until the crank arm falls off onto the concrete and scratches up the nice finish on your crank arm.

Done.

be sure to thread it on all the way before trying to remove the crank arm, or you could strip these threads.

Be sure you lubricate the threads so they go in nicely. Be sure that they go in PERFECTLY straight, otherwise you'll cross-thread. Once that happens, you'll probably (eventually) loose the crank.

Also be sure to pull out the washer in there before you do anything.
