I bought the kobalt set sold at lowes. I like that the strap is made of rubber (the rigid one I have at work is cloth and SUCKS), but I did take some 80 grit sand paper to it because it was rather smooth when I got it. I don't know what happened to my little one. For taking apart most regulators, I find that I use the rubber strap wrapped around the part while doing the gripping with a pair of channels locks.
We have nothing to fear but fear itself. Apart from pain. And maybe humiliation and obviously death. And failure. But apart from fear, pain and humiliation, failure and the unknown and death we have nothing to fear but fear itself. Who’s with me? -Arnold J. Rimmer
