    Way back when I started my apprenticeship and having been taught to treat seals with care I was gobsmacked to see these used. Certainly make life easier.

    I have a couple different sizes of a similar though much simpler type seal tool. I have been using to install seals with them for 30 odd years.
    NortonDommi is correct you have to treat seal with respect. There are some seals I wouldn't ever consider folding double like that.
