    Does anyone have the actual king cone tensioning tool Should I buy one or just use a screwdriver? Has anyone found another tool that works well? Ive had my king for about 8 months and it just skipped on me a couple of weeks ago. I tightened the cones (barely). Should I do anything else?

    Screwdriver? No!

    Just tighten it with your pointer finger and thumb. I have the tool and yet I choose not to use it.

    Ditto what Ken said. The tool is totally un-necessary, unless youre in the habit of breaking axles and cant get the lockrings OFF!
