Will this tool work on all of my Japanese bottom bracket lock rings. I don't want to order the wrong thing. https://www.niagaracycle.com/product_...oducts_id=3162

Thanks

don't know about ALL the lockrings you might come across, it certainly will work for many. My preference is the Hozan with 2 single hooks (one on either end), it's nearly always done the job, but I have a Campy, Park and Sugino as back-up.

Thanks unworthy, I guess that was kind of a vague question. I though maybe there was one very common size. I should be able to figure it by measuring the outside diameter of the lock ring

I have only done maybe 5 BBs so far, all 80s Japanese, and that tool has handled them all.

That tool is great for low end BBs. If you get into 105, 600 and dura-ace or campagnolo this too is a must have.
