I bought a set of RC4WD wheel hubs knowing they didn't sell a tool for them but for the price i couldn't pass them up.

Now i know others that use pliers to install them but that just buggers them up which was unacceptable. Well i got to looking at them and came up with a solution.

Quite simply i stopped at my local dollar store and picked up a set of cheep pliers

Then using a cut-off wheel and a file i cut it down to look like this

Now i am able to reach around the front of the hub and grab the volutes on the back side

Now i can snug them up fully without messing up the finish
