    A pair of grips rarely fails.

    Unless some muppet has graunched a 15mm fitting on soooo hard the olive has squished the pipe :)

    I had a pair of these, were brilliant when new but when they got a bit older I found they lost there oooomph. The only reason I stick with the other type is when they get a bit blunt you can twist them a bit harder :)

    I have one of those you linked to O.P.
    Works very well and costs pennies.

    Yep thought it might, like the Rothy olive guillotine just with handles.

    Im guilty aswell, prefer the security of the olive slightly crushing the tube so it cant pop off if it gets knocked about a bit...not exactly hard to do now with the wall thickness of tube being so thin.

    I'm a bit old fashioned. Junior hacksaw a screwdriver head slot in the olive, get a suitably sized screwdriver in there and twist. Off they pop :)
