Rated 1 out of 5 by from Insertion tool How on earth Maplin can justify charging Ј7.49 for this piece of plastic, I have no idea - didn't even work well.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from It did the job... sort of I needed this tool in a hurry. Ј7.50 was ridiculous for a moulded piece of plastic. It didn't work well - I had to fiddle quite a bit with it. They do sell another tool at Ј15 - if you're doing more than 1 job I'd recommend that.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Total Rubbish! Don't waste your time or money on this. Maplin should remover this embarrassingly poor product from its line.
