I never actually used it. I attended a class put on by G.E. many years ago when they were going to use Lokring for all refrigerator, freezer and window A/C repairs. The tubing at the connection must be perfectly round. If you prep everything like they say I think it works well. The tool is expensive and so are the fittings.

Yes our installers used it for about 80% of a large change out of fan coil units. It was a good product however sometimes you just couldn't get that tool into the tight spaces. Two of our guys changed out almost 300 fan coil units.
It takes courage to grow up and turn out to be who you really are.
