Great tool
11 Mar 2013
By AidyH
, Blackpool
"This tool is a fantastic addition to any toolbox. It is fast to set up and use. The only downside are the little rubber ends on the thumb bar which come off too easily and get lost meaning the bar slides out. Apart from that its great."

plumbing essential
25 Jan 2013
By curlypete

"This is the best plumbing tool ever, even if you only have one olive to remove, buy one, it saves hours of work and frustration. Nicely made in the UK, works in a confined space and doesn't clutter up the tool box too much! Well done Monument!."

Top Pull
28 Nov 2012
By SurreyWill
, Surrey
"This thing is awesome fun.
I've quite literally spent all day finding old scraps of pipe with compression joints on and gleefully pulling all the olives off.
I'm half inclined to buy a big bag of olives so I can make and remove them any time I get bored.
A little pricey, but cheaper than a cinema ticket if you buy the popcorn."

great tool
23 Mar 2012
By treelow
, slough
"Having read previous reviews and having to replace 10 rad trv's, I purchaced this. Just my luck the person who fitted the old valves must have used a 4ft spanner or was he man in a previous life, as the ollives were compressed from 15mm to 12mm!!! So the puller worked but extruded the copper to 12mm and it had to be cut off!
On the plus side, it did pull the ollive from the radiator spigiot as this is made from steel. But yes,,, great tool.

Olive Puller - Time Saver
15 Dec 2011
By Customer37
, Edinburgh
"I have managed without one of these tools for over 30 years and although not in the plumbing trade have carried out a great deal of domestic plumbing work.
Just used it to remove brass olives on a number of 22mm copper mains pipes - one was difficult to access under a sink hard against the cabinet wall. These olives had been compressed onto the pipe very tightly but this tool removed them with relative ease. The pipe ends had been cut using a pipe cutter so were nice and square. Not sure it would have worked so well if they had been angled as the tool relies on pushing down on the end on the pipe to draw the olive off.
This tool is well worth the money as it saved me time and my only regret is that I never bought one 30 years ago.
Minor point is that the torsion bar is a little on the small side and the rubber end caps drop off."

"Purchased this tool from screwfix and after using it in few different occasions i decided to write this review. With 2 words! is worth heaving it in your toolbox! is small , with 2 functions, removing 15 & 22 mm olives from pipes, when you changing radiator valves or performing something similar on it."

"I have only used this to remove copper olives and it is a great tool.
However another reviewer has found that it does not remove brass olives successfully and the tool even sustains damage should this be attempted. So I bow to his superior experience. But if you are only dealing with copper olives it is great!"

I nearly took it back!
21 Dec 2012
By HairyAnimal
, Gloucestershire
"While changing to a different boiler I had to move three 2-port valves. Thinking this puller would be perfect for removing the six olives and nuts from the old pipes I bought it only to discover that the nuts on my Honeywell valves had a much finer thread and the tool wouldn't work at all. It is great for everything else I've tried it on though."

works fine but...

"Having struggled with stuck, over tightened olives I thought this would be the answer to my problems. It works perfectly as long as the pipe end has not been compressed and bulges, even slightly, otherwise out with the pipe slice."

Not for Popeye fitters
23 Jul 2014
By MrStrathmore
, East Kilbride
"This is a good tool if you need to remove olives from pipes that have been installed by a sensible plumber.
It really falls down when someone has really cracked the torque and caused the pipe to deform. Rothenberger make a better tool in the form of an olive splitter. This has the added benefit of taking any size of pipe from 15mm up and is very easy to use.
If the installer lacked a stetson and spurs then this will be okay for you, unless you need to do a 28mm.
For my problem olives this other tool was a better bet and easier to use. Even for one pipe that the fitter had not cut perfectly square. Screwfix don't stock it and the big stores want about £34 but you can shop around. Mine was £20 at an auction..."

olive puller
30 Aug 2011
By Ronnumber
, Basingstoke
"I had 26 olives to remove that had been on for 28 years with pipe ends that were not square.
worked well for most but 3 or 4 really tough ones bellowed the pipe end before the olive moved and I had to file the pipe and use gas pliers to get the olive off

50% success
4 Dec 2008
By Biff
, Lincolnshire
"This olive puller only works on copper olives, if a brass olive has been used, and crushed to the pipe (as it usually is) then this puller does damage the pipe, and itself, and the olive stays where it is, back to a hacksaw or tube cutter in the old fashioned way. I've only used it on 15mm olives, so may be OK on 22mm brass olives, but I doubt it."

Rubbish

By rmplumbingservices

"As a plumber quick olive removal so I can get on with my next job is important. This is a load of rubbish though and you can get olive cutters (not on SF at present) which look like pliers and are much better. Save your money in my opinion."
