Park Tool issues a 'stop use and inspect' notice for some crank-puller tools

Published May 6, 2022

ST. PAUL, Minn. (BRAIN) — Park Tool has issued a Stop Use and Inspect Notice for their CCP-22, CCP-44 and CWP-7 crank pullers due to an out-of-spec nut may cause damage to cranks during removal. Some, but not all, tools sold between October 2021 and April 2022 may be affected by the out of spec threading on the nut. 

The notice applies to Park Tool CCP-22CCP-44 and CWP-7 Crank Pullers. Some, but not all, tools purchased between October 2021 and April 2022 may be affected.

To see if your tool is affected, locate the nut on each of the tools per the images below and inspect the threading. Bad threads will have a flat peak, and the improper thread peaks will extend almost halfway down the threading of the nut. The non-affected tools have sharper and consistent thread peaks throughout the length of the nut, as shown in the picture.

Park Tool will replace the nuts with bad threads at no cost. If you have inspected your puller, and have determined you need a replacement nut, Park Tool asks that:

  • CUSTOMERS IN THE UNITED STATES: Visit, and follow the instructions.
  • CUSTOMERS OUTSIDE THE UNITED STATES: Please contact your point of purchase for resolution.
  • DISTRIBUTORS: Please forward this notice to any of your customers who purchased the affected products from you.
