    I got sick and tired of fighting for up to half and hour with PTO couplings so I came up with this tool. I made it out of 1/4 steel which turned out to be a mistake because I had to thin it down. 3/16 would be a better choice to use. I used an old coupling as a guide so there are no measurements, it is a cut and fit deal. You use the tool by simply pulling back the collar and inserting the tool in between the collar and clip. And with the collar locked back it is so much easier to slid the coupling on the shaft. I found it is easier to remove the tool by taking you trigger finger and pulling it stright down. If you look close you will see a "V" notch cut out in the tool this is for the ball to fit in.I hope these pictures load right.
