Box Immersion Spanner
Seems very strong, handled the Emersion heater on a old style Megaflo without much bother, but had to use a strong pipe in conjunction with the Tommy bar to get a bit more torque.
Turned out to be an easy job, buying the tool is a small price to pay compared to calling out a plumber.

Very Poor Bar Which Bends!
Very tight fit on immersion element but let down by the bar which bends easily and and was not rigid enough to release the element. Had to spend double again for another make from another supplier but it did the job effortlessly.

Immersion Heater Spanner
basic tool which did the job, saved me paying a plumer :O)

The pressed steel box spanner was a reasonably good fit on the old heater although the strength of the bar is a big let down.
after a few taps with a lump hammer the bar started to bend.
After applying a little heat to the flange and a few more taps, the old unit came out ok without splitting the can.
I would say that this box spanner is ok for tightening new heater but not that clever for removing older seized heaters.
I will take this back and pay a few quid more for the right tool. paying a few quid extra for the right tool will save time on the job faffing around with sub standard tools.
