Hi,

I've looked all over to find a tool that will slide over a T-Rex 700 ball link end, and allow it to be easily tightened and loosened. After working on the setup of my new T-Rex 700N my fingers are getting a bit tender! I've found a number of such tools, but nothing that will fit a T-Rex 700 ball link!

Thanks,

John

This may help a little, use is a spring load clothes pin. Just clip it on the end of the ball link and squeeze the wooden part with your fingers, It's better than pliers because the wood won't damage the link.

Why these are not included in the Align kits confuses me - would cost them near nothing and help us all so much

Awesome! Thanks for the tip on the Align HOT00008. They are even in stock at my local supplier, Helidirect!

Thanks,

Oh, you don't have one of these do you? Problem is, I have been in the hobby so long I don't remember where the heck I got it.

It easily fits in a drill driver, or multi tool. Thing is if using a power tool you go very slowly to prevent over heating the link
