help with bottom bracket tools

I had a tool for HT-II which fit snugly and worked perfectly.

I have another double ended bottom bracket spanner which fits BB30 and again the old HTII cups.

The new shimano HT-II are smaller (6800 / 5800) and come with an adapter, which I assumed fits between the BB cups and the tool... however, they don't.

Anyone know where I am going wrong, or know of a tool which fits?


  • Shimano TL-FC37

    Source: same annoyance as you - bloody adaptor didn't fit my tool either, like it was supposed to.
  • £22 for a tool! What a complete joke!

    I'm tempted to just keep on buying old style BB's
