The Quiet Workbench Hero

The Park Tool VC-1 Valve Core Tool is so slight, it is easy to overlook its stature as a venerable shop standard. This small, handy tool is designed to remove and install Schrader and Presta valve cores and to remove and install inline Presta valve extenders with 5mm wrench flats. The VC-1 is invaluable both for seating tubeless tires and topping off sealant through Presta valves.

Features:

  • Easy installs and removes valve cores
  • For use with
  • Compatible with Presta and Schrader valves
  • Also installs Presta valve extenders
  • Note that not all Presta valve cores are removable

Solid multi-function valve tool
rating
by 
Cycling Enthusiast

Sturdy-seeming with expected Park Tool fit and finish, this seems like a reasonable choice for someone who can use all of its functions. In retrospect, since I only need the presta core tool, I would (and eventually did) opt instead for a smaller alternative that doubles as a valve cap

The usual Park Tool quality

I've never been disappointed with any Park Tool item, and this is the usual high quality. Pretty simple thing when you get to it, but absolutely essential for working with tubeless tires.

A Must Have 4 Tubeless
rating

This is actually a must have if you run tubeless tires. The valve core removal tools which typically come with tubeless tires and stems for tubeless are OK but often lack the durability you need over the long haul. Those tools are also quite small and not as easy to use if you're you have any issues with hand or finger manipulation as do many Senior cyclists like me. The Park VC-1 valve tool significantly reduces this dexterity challenge.

Needed a tool to deal with the Lezyne pump head sometimes pulling out Presta cores. Also useful for injecting sealant for tubeless applications. Well made and has been useful. I try not to think how much money I spent on it.

Fits perfectly on presta valves (have not tried on Schrader). Easy to use on stuck cores. Wish I had this years ago.

A wonderful multipurpose tool that you can use on both Schrader and Presta valves. The tool is compact and light too and easy to store.

What's to say? It works. I like the blue anodizing. Makes it a bit easier to find in the tool tray.
