Default KH crank insert


I need help figuring out what tool I can used to tighten a ring that
fell off the inside of my KH crank. I know how to screw it back in, but
it's not tight enough to stay put. Any suggestions?

Not sure if that's the right tool... My BikeShop have that tool, I can
ask if it works!

I used two spokes, put them in the holes and angled them together, I
then gripped them with some pliers and turned them with that. It worked
realy well, got them realy tight. Probably not the best way to do it but
if you dont have anything else it will work.

Also make sure you locktight it before you do it.

One problem you may have with using specific tools is because of the
profile of the back face of the crank, it doesnt alow you to insert the
tool properly. Thats why I used spokes.

a pair of circlip pliers or very thin needle nose pliers will do it. The
pin tool shown above is better if you have to go and buy something, but
you might have pliers lying around at home.

or just go to your LBS.

If they're nice they will charge nothing or almost nothing.

Yeah if you check out your bike shop they can probably do it for you, or
just buy a spanner... they don't cost a fortune.
