Stein Cog Tool

I've been using this super burly Stein Cog Tool for a while now in place of a chain whip
It only works for sizes 16,17,18, and 19 tooth cogs, but luckily those are the only sizes I currently ride. You place the tool put on the cog, place the silver piece over the axle, put on the axle nut loosely (to allow for room to back off the cog) and crank away with no worries about tool slippage. You can generate a shit load of force with this thing which also means you can use it for installs without worrying as much about the cog moving forward and having to re tighten your lockring

it ain't cheap but it's pro as hell
