Ya mean #ZZ23192.
Seems nobody has given a review of any of them at the J&P site.
I've never used them so I have no clue how well they work.
As far as the 'special tools' they say are needed for seal replacement, I've never worried about messing up the old seals at removal, and when installing new seals, I'd usually use a socket or piece of pipe the same size as the seals to drive them in.

Yeah those are the ones.

I know how most of these "no special tool" super products work. I was wondering if any one tried them. I'll probably just get the regular seals.

I have about 100' of the "special tool" in my backyard (I'm a plumber)

When you remove the top clip, leave the fork in the bike. Use a small pry bar with a cloth wrapped around it under the handle bar.

Makes clip removal and installation very easy.

Pretty straight forward job.
