I bet it would work pretty well with that pitbull wedge thingymabob...Haven't tried one of those yet, but captive spacers definitely make things a bit easier.
I tried one of those pitbull wedge thingymabob the last time i changed my rear. It did help, but I also forgot it was under the rear when I tried to turn the rear after putting on the rear axle bolt, to just double check. Wheel didn't turn and I disassembled the rear because I thought I forgot something. Turns out I forgot that I had the wedge still underneath. So it's not the wedges fault obviously. Just my forgetful self.

Hopefully that will help clarify.

You only need 1 tool. It holds the rear caliper bracket while you remove the wheel. I never found a need for any other assistance with taking the rear wheel on/off. With this tool you can easily get above the tire giving you a lot more leverage to hold the wheel in place.

OK,, so from your last post PainfullySlo it makes sense going with the video I need ONE.

Above is what started the questions. States a SET and showing two.
The first package showed $33, so I thought $60 for two made some sense except why did I need two , since the video only showed one.

Put me down for one please, and let me know what the final price is.

Indy, the $60/set comment was in regard to his levers. Read the comments before.
