Nice idea, they can be a pain in the shorts if you don't have a helper w/o a tool

I think maybe the tool was intended for 'smiths that assemble many units in short order. I used my hands as well but I could see if you were using an upper vise block having the tool would definitely make working the delta ring pretty quick and effortless.

Your toothbrush idea is a good improvise. ++1

I installed several 4-Rail handguards on my AR's from Midwest Industries. I purchased a Tapco Delta Ring Tool for $12.00. It was worth every cent. Is it a must? No. There are ways around everything. But if I'm spending well over $400.00 on 3 sets of quality handguards, trying to save $12 bucks, and having to struggle in the process, seems a bit silly. The tool made the job much easier. Paying that small amount to assure an easy installation was well worth the cost of 3 gallons of gas.

This. I used my hands to remove them but my DD rail was much harder to install without a tool. I ended up using a pair of channel locks and scratched my delta ring a little. Next time I may get the proper tool.

ahh, after the first couple of times it gets A LOT easier. Think that tool would be great for someone arthritic though. I can see how that would cause a ton of problems!
